From Vision to Action: Transforming Nonprofits with Sustainable Social Impact Solutions
In this episode of Nonprofit Hub Radio, host Delaney Mullennix interviews Diz Petit, Founder and CEO of LiquiDonate, about her impressive track record of turning her vision into action. LiquiDonate combines Diz’s years of experience working with tech companies to implement social impact programs that leverage their existing business model and evolving technologies with her love for the work and people of nonprofits. With an ambitious mission, Diz set out to reduce landfill waste and enable circularity by connecting retailers’ excess, unsold, and returned inventory to nonprofits via seamless technology. This is one of countless new technologies that have sprung up for nonprofits to save time and raise more to do more.
Diz shares a few stories about her favorite tattoos, although, they are all her favorite. Delaney and Diz talk about how Diz first get started in the sustainable social impact space, her first experiences in nonprofits, and how nonprofits can get started with LiquiDonate for free to start receiving donations today!
Prior to LiquiDonate, Diz founded Civic Labs, the social impact team at Postmates. Civic Labs’ mission was to positively impact our neighborhoods through community engagement and innovative technology solutions to combat complex, pervasive issues. Postmates was acquired by Uber Technologies.
Diz’s passion and action won her the Time Magazine Invention of the year award for the food security product, Bento, that allows hungry people without access to a smartphone obtain free food via SMS. She is a feminist, a member of the LGBTQ+ community, and an animal rights activist through the lens of environmental justice and human rights, and works to be a better practicing ally for marginalized communities.
