    • Society & Culture

Kirsten Larsen + Serenity Hill are proof that two minds are better than one.

As the founders of Open Food Network, a game-changing open source technology at the centre of building valued and fair food chains, they think globally, act locally and are actively encouraging a culture where whole-self is present in the workplace. 
Hear how these two values-aligned women brought their shared vision for fairer local food systems to life -- and why the rest of the world is excited.
