On April 27, the Kalmanovitz Initiative held a reception to celebrate the launch of the More than Money (new window), a stirring podcast created by KI Fellow Dawn Carpenter on the values that drive how we engage with work and wealth.

Dawn is the creator and host of the podcast, which she developed as a KI Practitioner Fellow (new window) and doctoral candidate in liberal studies at Georgetown University. The show is produced by KI undergraduate research assistant Sonia Adjroud.

The podcast is designed in a 12-episode season format. Each episode is produced around two core interview segments sharing a common theme. In this podcast, we explore the following topic areas: (1) business ethics, (2) economic justice, (3) corporate social responsibility, (4) social entrepreneurship, (5) community development, and (6) faith and values-based investing.

The first three episodes are available on iTunes, and a new episode will be released every Monday – subscribe and listen now! (new window)

KI Executive Director Joe McCartin offered opening remarks at the reception. Dawn shared her story and introduced the podcast to attendees before joining co-CEO of Conscious Capitalism (new window) Alexander McCorbin for a discussion on the ways businesses live out their values through corporate social responsibility. Alexander is a Season 1 guest in Episode 3, while KI Program Manager Jessica Chilin features as a Spanish-language translator on Episode 4.
