Ryan Honeyman is a Partner / Worker-Owner at LIFT Economy and coauthor of "The B Corp Handbook: How to Use Business as a Force for Good" (Berrett-Koehler Publishers). Ryan has helped over 50 companies—like Patagonia, Allbirds, Ben & Jerry’s, King Arthur Flour, Tanka Bar, Animikii, and Red Bay Coffee—become Certified B Corporations, recertify as B Corporations, and maximize the value of their B Corp certification. Ryan provides diversity, equity, and inclusion consulting services to B Corps and other social enterprises. Ryan has a particular focus on working with other white-identified folks (particularly companies that are white-led and/or majority white) in order to help educate, organize, and mobilize “our own” as part of a multi-racial, cross-class movement towards collective liberation. Along with his LIFT Economy team, Ryan helped cofound the Force for Good Fund, a $1M fund that invests in women and people of color-owned, "Best for the World" B Corps (e.g., those that score in the top 10% of all B Corps worldwide). He is also a cohost of "Next Economy Now," a LIFT podcast highlighting the leaders who are taking a regenerative, bio-regional, democratic, transparent, and whole-systems approach to using business for good. Ryan has written articles for the Stanford Social Innovation Review, Fast Company, Entrepreneur, Huffington Post, Utne Reader, and TriplePundit. He has been a featured speaker at SOCAP, Bioneers, Summit LA, the B Corp Champions Retreat, the Sustainable Enterprise Conference, the Hong Kong Social Enterprise Summit, the Stanford d.school, the Wharton School of Business, the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business, and many others.
