In this episode of Entrepreneurs For Good, I speak with Marina Kalnitski about the work that she and her colleagues are doing at the Inclusion Factory to build an inclusive business that employees more than 50 individuals with intellectual disabilities work in a factory that produces high precision auto and electrical components.
As you will see in this interview, Marina is a passionate leader who loves her work, the team she works with, and she has big ideas for how to scale the mission of this organization.
