Programs

Being a B Corporation helps us focus our own programming to align with our mission. So we teach workshops, develop programs, write books, price our services, and volunteer our time to serve people and orgs who are mission-aligned.

Giving

We give our time, and we donate to the organizations we care about. Everyone at LimeRed is encouraged to volunteer and has unlimited vacation time to do so. We participate in programs like MakeWork at SAIC, we teach free events, serve on boards, and we participate in our communities.
