Awareness of conscious capitalism and its value to business leaders is growing. But long before the term “conscious capitalism” was coined, business leaders have operated with its precepts in mind. And many have maintained their success over a long period of time.

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