Showing off Community Forklift as an example of American creativity

Our Outreach & Education team loves giving tours to school groups, local leaders, real estate companies, professional associations, and others interested in social entrepreneurship, waste reduction, and the reuse movement.  Sometimes, we even get international visitors!

Strong women - compressed

Yesterday, we hosted a group of inspiring leaders from a Global Women in Management workshop.  Our friends at PLAN International set up a tour of our warehouse so they could learn how we turn “trash” into jobs and economic opportunities.  After the tour, they met with CEO Nancy J. Meyer, Director of Administration Mariam D’Eustachio, and Director of Outreach & Education Ruthie Mundell to discuss the Forklift’s history, challenges, and growth.

We really enjoyed their insightful observations and suggestions!  It was an honor to meet amazing women who are building opportunities for women all over the world, in places as diverse as Nigeria, Kazakhstan, Quatar, New Zealand, and Argentina.

If you would like to  schedule a tour for your school or organization, please contact Events(at), or call Tim or Ruthie at 301-985-5180.
