Description

What are B Corps™?

B Corps represent a movement of entrepreneurs who are proud of their companies’ positive impact, whether it’s improving the livelihoods of their workers, strengthening their community ties, or revolutionizing current green practices! The common thread linking Certified B Corporations®, such as Toronto-based Propeller Coffee Co. and Gladstone Hotel, is that they define success as more than money – and they measure it using the B Corp assessment.

The workshop

Using a free, confidential online tool based on the B Corp assessment, you will learn how to develop novel metrics of success by measuring your company’s current impact in the following areas:

  • governance
  • employees
  • community
  • environment

This assessment will identify where your company has a strong, beneficial impact, as well as areas for growth. If you are a business owner or employee interested in the B Corp Certification – or simply looking to complete an impact “health check” – then this seminar is for you!

Please bring your laptop, and we’ll bring the refreshments!
