The Economy of Communion in North America held its first of a series of bi-monthly meetings in 2021 on January 16.
Paul Catipon, President of Netpro Communication, an innovative and rapidly growing full-service IT consulting firm based in New York City, shared how the inclusive business practices inspired by the Economy of Communion (EoC) are put in practice by a growing number of businesses and people in the city.
Catipon says: “Instead of running the EoC principles by myself, can we involve other companies?” He then explained the network of relationships formed and the various initiatives that became the answer to that question.
The meeting agenda also included a reflection on the meaning of ‘poverty’ in the EoC, a few experiences from current and former entrepreneurs, as well as introductions to ‘The Economy of Francesco‘ and ‘The Hearth of a Human Family’, of which the EoC is a contributing partner.

We work to harness the potential of the private sector, to create a capitalism that enables everyone economic participation, as well as economic dignity, while protecting the planet. (Meredith Sumpter)
