“Linda has created an easy, cost effective and streamlined program for companies who understand that getting on the “Social Responsibility Train” is critical to their competitive success in a new world where social responsibility has become the new norm, not the exception. There is nothing quite like this program in the marketplace – vendors should run, not walk! For large corporate supply chains, these programs are a mandate today”

“Working with Linda and the team at Cross Sector Institute has kept me focused and helped me stay true to my vision of creating a product development business that helps my clients bring innovative product ideas from “back of the napkin” to reality.
