A Conscious Conversation on Suppliers

Join us at the Boston Public Market for this important conversation!

Conscious business practices must extend beyond the company’s internal practices to those of their partners and suppliers. Indeed, you’re only as conscious as your weakest supply chain partner. Some of the most egregious human rights scandals, for example, have arisen from the suppliers of major corporations. So business leaders need to be aware of the people, processes and systems that provide the raw materials and services that the company requires to operate.

And practices in the supply chain aren’t just a risk; they can be also be an advantage. Companies can build brands around how well they engage with suppliers on social and environmental issues, such as ensuring living wages or reducing carbon emissions. Thus, businesses that strive to be conscious pay particular attention to how goods are transported, how laborers are treated, and where and how they source their raw materials and services. 

Join us for a discussion on how business leaders understand their relationship to supply chains, detect and monitor supply chain issues, and use their supply chain to their advantage.

  • How can companies large and small work their partners to ensure conscious practices throughout the supply chain?
  • How can suppliers translate their conscious practices to the advantage of their business customers?
  • How should technology and services companies address their supply chains differently from product manufacturers and retailers?

About the Conscious Conversations series  Our Conscious Conversations are designed to facilitate peer exchange about a specific aspect of Conscious Capitalism. Each event consists of a short panel discussion, followed by small group discussions to allow participants to share ideas, challenges and solutions. We leave plenty of time to make new connections with other conscious capitalists.

Who we are  Our mission is to connect, educate and inspire leaders and workers to consciously build businesses that positively impact the world. Members of the Boston chapter of Conscious Capitalism are diverse individuals who recognize the power of capitalism to improve the human condition and create enduring value for all stakeholders. We come from organizations large and small, at different stages of our careers, from CEO to student. We’re bound by our common curiosity about these ideas and the desire to create change in organizations and society.

This event is brought to you with the special support of Boston Public Market and the Trustees.

Conscious Capitalism Chapter of Boston is a Chapter in Formation of Conscious Capitalism International.
