As 2021 winds down, we’re thrilled to share more good news!
Last week, Turn90’s Director of Operations, Kim Huey, was named to the prestigious 2022 Accelerator Cohort of REDF. REDF (the Roberts Enterprise Development Fund) is a pioneering venture philanthropy accelerating a national movement of employment social enterprises – businesses with a social purpose to provide paying jobs, training, and support for people striving to build a better life as they overcome steep barriers to employment.
“REDF is thrilled to bring together and invest in this powerful and diverse group of leaders with deep expertise and lived experience in overcoming barriers to employment,” said Yodit Beyene, Associate Director, REDF Accelerator. “The Accelerator remains a unique and vital source of collective learning and innovation in employment social enterprise, growing the knowledge and networks of participating leaders and informing our own strategies and investments through the expertise and perspective of leaders across industries and geographies”
Being a part of this “mini-MBA for social enterprises” will give Huey, and therefore Turn90, greater insight into the best ways to run, market, and expand the Turn90 Print Shop so we can support even more men coming home from prison.
“I am thrilled to represent Turn90 in the 2022 REDF Accelerator,” said Huey. “This is an incredible opportunity to explore how our little Social Enterprise can continue grow and develop a successful model for the future. I feel like it’s going to be an invaluable experience for me, and in turn, our organization and the men we serve.”
