As the seasons change once again, we find ourselves back to work and reconnecting with our professional networks. At Conscious Capitalism Boston, we're dedicated to supporting your journey in understanding and practicing the principles of Conscious Capitalism - Higher Purpose, Stakeholder Orientation, Conscious Leadership and Conscious Culture. Together, we foster discussions, host public events, provide networking opportunities, and engage in various initiatives that align with our mission. As a local and global organization, we continuously adapt to the evolving landscape of work.
Conscious Capitalism Boston was founded in 2017 and established as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization operating under the national umbrella. Over the years, we've created dedicated groups for middle-market companies in the Boston area. These groups serve as platforms for sharing best practices, discussing management strategies, and exploring issues related to the stakeholder-focused future of business. Every six weeks, we bring together CEOs/Founders, executives, expert advisors, and frontline workers to delve into topics ranging from diversity and inclusion to sustainability and corporate culture transformation.
We are dedicated to expanding our community by welcoming more companies into the conversation. We aim to actively network and connect with organizations that share our vision of evolving capitalism as a force for good.
