    An Inconvenient Act: How you can be a part of the climate crisis solution 

    The reality about climate change is somewhere in between doomsday scenarios and science denialism.

    You'll learn: 

    • What is the reality behind the climate crisis?
    • What solutions are at hand to solve the climate crisis?
    • How can you and your business contribute to climate change mitigation and adaptation?

    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.

    Impact is a word of currency and a subject of keen interest for those who care deeply about environmental and social sustainability. We’re fortunate that the Boston area has become a key ecosystem for thought leadership nationally, however high-level events and academic-leaning panels have left some of us wondering - How can we as individuals or as startups seeking funding get involved in this impact ecosystem? At BASG’s March 5th event, we will feature first-hand, boots-on-the-ground stories of impact investment to answer this question.

    To help demystify how we can move from the sidelines to the playing field and get involved in direct impact investment, we will hear from:

    • A co-founder of a worker-owned, brew pub steps from the Massachusetts State House, who had the vision to turn an idea into a thriving business via a Direct Public Offering.
    • The co-founder of the US branch of the successful Canadian Social Venture Connexion (SVX), a platform offering broad access to impact investments that launched in the fall with a non-profit, raising growth capital.
    • One of the few local investment advisors who has done thorough due diligence on impact investment offerings and then made them available to his clients.

    And we’ll learn about:

    • The Boston Ujima Project, which is challenging poverty and developing communities by organizing savings, businesses and customers to grow local wealth and make communities more self-sufficient. Ujima is raising funds now.
    • Active offerings for aspiring impact investors (1-2 minute pitches TBD)

    Our evening will start with a brief introduction to what sets impact investment apart from socially responsible investing (SRI), followed by presentations, and plenty of time for discussion and networking.

    Whether you’re starting a sustainable business, deploying sustainable solutions, looking to make small (or larger) investments, or just curious, our presenters will help guide you. And we hope you’ll bring your own stories, whether you’ve participated as an investor or startup, or in some other way have been involved in the impact movement!

    Sociocracy for All: Governance aligned with your values

    Do you want the way you run your enterprise to be aligned with your values? Do you want your decision-making processes to be inclusive and yet still efficient?

    Sociocracy is a governance framework that combines decision-making, empowerment of small, agile teams and a meeting format that helps us build trust and continuous improvement. It has a resemblance with an agile mindset, people care in permaculture and participatory decision-making. In this presentation, we will try out shared decision-making in different areas: consent decision-making as a group, decision-making in linked circles, and elections sociocracy style. Everyone can participate in sociocratic processes to experience the flow and wholesomeness it brings to groups. It will be insightful, entertaining, and meaningful. Everyone will walk away with little ideas to try out immediately -- and big ideas to explore more.

    Speaker

    Ted Rau lives in Amherst MA with his 5 children. He is the co-founder of the non-profit Sociocracy For All that provides free access to learning materials, community building, and training/consulting. He is co-author of the comprehensive sociocracy manual "Many Voices One Song" published in June 2018.

    Customer loyalty, employee engagement, leadership integrity, community partnership. These are aspirations shared by progressive business leaders who understand that top-line growth and bottom-line profitability increase as a result of a holistic management strategy.

    In his 2019 annual letter to CEOs, Larry Fink of BlackRock writes:

    Profits are essential if a company is to effectively serve all of its stakeholders over time – not only shareholders, but also employees, customers, and communities. Similarly, when a company truly understands and expresses its purpose, it functions with the focus and strategic discipline that drive long-term profitability. Purpose unifies management, employees, and communities.

    Conscious Capitalism (consciouscapitalism.org) is a global movement energized by the credo of Higher Purpose, Stakeholder Orientation, Conscious Leadership and Conscious Culture. Let’s bring Conscious Capitalism to Rhode Island.

    We invite business leaders to join us for a discussion about tangible ways to act on the four pillars of Conscious Capitalism.

    Why Attend?

    • Learn about the four pillars of Conscious Capitalism and the global movement.
    • Hear examples from Rhode Island business owners about Conscious Capitalism in action.
    • Identify at least two concrete opportunities for applying Conscious Capitalism in your own business.
    • Form new relationships with other mindful business leaders who share a vision for a thriving 21st century Rhode Island business sector, focused on how business can and does impact our global society today.
