Conscious Calendar

    • December 01, 2020
    • 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM (EST)
    • Zoom (link provided in confirmation email)

    As business leaders, we strive to build inclusive, conscious companies that are connected to our communities. Right now, the world is at an inflection point: consciousness and conversation about structural racism is gaining momentum in the mainstream, and we have the opportunity to turn that into meaningful, organized action.

    While many are initiating and leading productive dialogue within their organizations, we often receive requests for insight, guidance, and practical tools to make a greater impact—within companies and in the broader community. Join Beth Chandler, President and CEO at YW Boston, and Corey Thomas, Chairman and CEO of Rapid7, for a conversation hosted by Conscious Capitalism Boston. These business and cultural leaders will share their experiences on how their organizations have gone—and are going—about diversity, equity, and inclusion work. You’ll hear about their initiatives, challenges, and future hopes, and leave with their best advice and tools to start turning your conversations into actions.

    Event Agenda:

        Welcome ~ 5 minutes

        Speakers ~ 45 minutes

        Question and Answers ~ 15 minutes

        Breakout rooms for networking and discussion ~ 20 minutes

        Closing ~ 5 minutes

    While we love participation at all levels of organizations for the majority of our events, this breakfast is reserved for those in CEO and President roles. Therefore, Conscious Capitalism Boston will confirm your registration upon verification of your role. Thank you for your understanding.

    Immense collective intelligence exists in your organization. What are you doing to tap this intelligence? Training your people on how they can improve as leaders is a start!

    To guide us in this conversation, we have the privilege of hosting Daniel Friedland, MD, CEO of SuperSmartHealth and author of "Leading Well From Within" and Co-Founder & Chief Culture Officer of LAZ Parking Michael Harth. Laz Parking is renowned for the engaging culture they've built over the past four decades. They look to continually improve their culture - and they do this through practicing servant leadership and continually investing in the personal and professional growth of leaders. Our event will provide a window of insight into the methodology - integrating Conscious Leadership with Appreciative Inquiry - that Daniel applied with the LAZ Parking Leadership Team - tapping into the knowledge and wisdom of the leadership team that they did not even realize they possessed.

    Join us for the practical and inspiring session!
