Bockman, a finance director at Fortune 500 company CBRE, went vegan “mostly for the animals.” However, back in 2014, she couldn’t find any other “corporate vegans” like herself to connect with, so she created VLCM — initially building a network on LinkedIn. “I was a vegan activist but also a rising Fortune 500 professional,” Bockman told Forbes. “I felt there was no community encompassing both.

But the ‘corporate’ vegans needed a community that was all about non-fringe image, pragmatism, strategy, and professionalism.”
