Using Business as a Force for Good

We are born with a desire to work and not just any work, but to work with a purpose. Do you remember what you wanted to be when you grew up? We will explore the origins of work and purpose and how that changes as we mature. Our measures of success for the first part of our careers come with common standards: income potential, advancement potential, influence.  As we grow in our careers and age, those measures of success can lead to a journey of finding meaning in your work. B Corps give us a framework for operating a triple bottom line business. These businesses think and act differently. We will share two examples of B Corps that will provide inspiration in how we all can use our business/skills/influence for good.

In this session you will learn:

  1. Origins of our pursuit of purpose
  2. How to find inspiration in a purposeful role model
  3. Advantages of serving and looking out for the well-being of others
