#21 - Virginia Tenpenny - Chief Social Impact Officer at Starbucks

Virginia and I have been friends for over two decades. She currently serves as the Chief Social Impact Officer for a little coffee company here in Seattle you may have heard of. As ubiquitous and colossal as Starbucks is, this conversation was a revelation to me as to the intimate, personal efficacy that is possible when an entire cohort is fueled by a purpose higher than themselves. (and caffeine). Virginia and Mark talk about that time she was teaching English in Vietnam on 09/11; her Dad’s military service inspiring Starbucks’ Opportunity For All Initiative and creating equity from the ground up.
