Rising the Tide: Building Community Equity in Southern Arizona

  • Goodman's Interior Structures 3925 North Business Center Drive Tucson, AZ, 85705 United States (map)

Stakeholder: a person with an interest or concern in something, especially a business

Who are they?

How do they impact our businesses and organizations?

Why are they crucial to business?

Join us for a brand new series with partners Conscious Capitalism as we dive deeper into the how, why, and for who we do business for. This event will feature two speakers and a Q&A session from Local First Arizona and Conscious Capitalism to help you integrate the knowledge shared from our speakers into your own business or team.

This event is open to any business to attend. We also encourage you to bring clothing donations to benefit GoodThreads, a local nonprofit supporting foster families, housed at Goodman’s.

Local First Arizona and friends of Conscious Capitalism member tickets : $15

Non-Member tickets : $20

There are only 50 tickets available, so make sure to purchase yours early!

Jeff Kiewel Bio:

Jeff is a Tucson native and a graduate of the University of Arizona where he received his degree in Business Administration while becoming a three-year letterman for Arizona Football.  Jeff was an All Pac10 performer that has gone on to earn his Masters of Business Administration from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business. Along the way Jeff has held leadership positions at some of the biggest brands in the gold industry.  In 2015, Jeff joined Goodmans Interior Structures to be a part of their mission “At Goodmans, we will change our community”.  Goodmans is officially a Benefit Corporation that is focused on our community, environment and employees as well as our shareholders.  We are active supporters of Local First and our own GoodTHREADS (collecting and redistributing clothing to the foster and kinship community of Southern Arizona).  Jeff is a big supporter of local community outreach, is a graduate of the Greater Tucson Leadership class of 2018, and an active member in the Chamber of Commerce, Metropolitan Pima Alliance and other local associations that aim to make Tucson a better place to live and raise a family.

Gina Murphy-Darling Bio:

From about age five, Gina’s mom called her a “troublemaker” but always advised her that if she figured out how to do “it” right, it would serve her well in this world. Her mom was right. Translation?  Meet the Disruptor for Good! She really likes to stir things up and get people thinking AND acting. . She has spent most of her adult life working to improve the lives of at-risk children and families, and now our at-risk planet. She is madly and passionately in love with this great planet of ours and is tireless in her efforts to preserve it.  Her big dream?  Raise the consciousness, of every human being on this planet, about the reality of our climate and the health of our planet. Then, educate, inspire and engage them to be the change they wish to see in the world.
