In this episode of In the Business of Change we speak with Tamra Ryan, CEO of Denver-based Women’s Bean Project. The company was founded in 1989 – way before social enterprise was even trendy – with the belief that jobs are the primary weapons in the war against poverty and incarceration. Since that time the social enterprise has given over 800 women transitional jobs in gourmet food manufacturing, along with a host of support services and training in job and life skills.

Listen to the story of the Women’s Bean Project, its history, its challenges, its successes and the people who’ve worked hard to give it wings.
