I was honored to be asked to represent my local Entrepreneur's Organization Orange County chapter at the International Entrepreneurial Summit before the United Nations last month. In my years as an EO member, I’ve seen how strongly EO encourages the vital role entrepreneurs play in driving positive change. I’m excited by the opportunity to engage with the Sustainable Development Goals to lead substantive change both in our local community and around the world. As a signatory of the Outcomes Declaration I am committing to adopting and advancing practices to eradicate poverty, reverse gender inequality and halt climate change by 2030. I will adopt these actions in my own company, and I encourage other local businesses and organizations to do the same. Together, we can address these sustainable development challenges and help to make the world a better place.
