In particular, Goldbug is working to partner with local organizations to drive down rates of maternal mortality and improve maternal health outcomes in Colorado. These initiatives include hands-on support of local communities with the goal to expand those learnings to impact birth outcomes nationally. Exercising corporate social responsibility is a model that Katherine has implemented with the goal of helping birth givers and children thrive. Utilizing Goldbug as a platform to create awareness and make a positive impact in public health and health equity is an important way that Goldbug supports the community and their customers.
