Press Release

Good Business International(@GoodB) has been named one of five “Standout Companies” of 2010 by the Washington Post. GBI is a free public service information and research center that tracks values-based trends internationally. It joins Starbucks, General Motors, Honest Tea, and Executives Without Borders on the Washington Post list.

As sponsor for the first-ever TEDWomen(@TedTalks) conference, Levi’s collected hand-crafted journals from 50 young women that describe how they are making positive change. Eight of these contributors—from the U.S., U.K., and Japan— are now featured in a documentary film, Shape What’s to Come, directed by Chiara Clemente. Content from these motivational journals can also be seen on ShapeWhatstoCome.com, a global community for Millennial women to pursue their potential through collaboration and mentorship.
