purpose and profit to advance the UN Sustainability Goals
PHOENIX, AZ – October 20, 2020 – Morag Lucey, chief executive officer of Televerde, the first and only fully integrated sales and marketing technology organization with a proven execution model for generating demand and accelerating revenue, has been named to the Meaningful Business 100 (MB100) list. This distinguished award celebrates the top 100 business leaders globally who combine profit and purpose to help advance the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
As the CEO of a mostly incarcerated workforce, Ms. Lucey was recognized by Meaningful Business for creating positive, direct and intended impact aligned to one or more SDGs over the last 12 months and for being the driving force behind a business model that combines purpose and profit. Seven of Televerde’s 10 engagement centers are staffed entirely by incarcerated females, representing 70 percent of the company’s 600+ global workforce.
“Televerde is built on the belief that everyone should have equal access to opportunity and economic prosperity, regardless of their background or circumstance. As a company that embraces inclusive hiring practices, our goal is to unleash human potential in every talent pool and inspire other companies to do the same for the betterment of our businesses, communities and local economies,” said Morag Lucey, CEO of Televerde. “The UN Sustainable Development Goals guide us closer to the world we want. I am delighted to have been honored by Meaningful Business for our work in helping to advance the SDGs and put an end to extreme poverty and inequality, and support quality education and decent work for all.”
Ms. Lucey explained that Televerde’s commitment to working with disempowered populations has produced remarkable results both for clients and communities for more than 25 years. After empowering women with jobs and marketable business skills, Televerde provides career readiness, continuing education, mentoring, scholarships, and a host of other resources that help them reenter the global workforce as they are released.
“In what has been a challenging year for everyone, the MB100 provides an inspiring reminder of the brilliant work being done around the world to solve the biggest issues we are facing today. It cuts across geography, industry, role and company size to highlight the individuals demonstrating how business and entrepreneurship can help create a fairer, more sustainable world,” said Tom Lytton-Dickie, founder and CEO, Meaningful Business. “We are inspired by the work Morag Lucey and Televerde are doing to use business as a tool to create positive social change, notably for incarcerated women. We look forward to collaborating in the future.”
