The Conscious Capitalism Boston chapter will bring together a group of leaders to explore purpose – the definitive statement that every conscious business makes about the difference it’s trying to make in the world. In this interactive conversation, groups of leaders will talk about how that purpose comes into being, and how that purpose guides decision-making and behavior.
Ed Manzi, CEO, Fidelity Bank
Jackie Herskovitz Russell, President, Teak Media + Communication
Ellen Fitzgerald, Co-Founder, Mother Juice
Larry Yu, Managing Director, Kite Global Advisors
