Join us at Swan's Cohousing Market in Oakland for business networking and lunch with sustainability-minded entrepreneurs. Lunch is from noon to 1:30 pm. Besides listening briefly to our speaker, in our new interactive format we will meet in small groups to discuss an interactive and stimulating question of mutual interest. There will also be time to visit informally with other attendees, to hear about who they are and what they are working on or would like to manifest.

Speaker: Vi Ngo will be presenting from Rubicon Programs Inc., a 36 year old East Bay non-profit providing access to jobs and other services, focusing on the first aspect of the triple bottom line: social equity. Rubicon provides referrals of local, qualified individuals and helps empower people and businesses economically. Vi and her colleagues help organizations and businesses save money in their hiring process and take advantage of tax credits and wage reimbursement for training a new employee. Her presentation will show how. Vi has worked in employment development programs in both southern and northern California; her area of expertise is in providing free staffing services to any one that's hiring.
