Conscious Capitalism: A New Way Forward

June 15, 2016 @ 6:00 PM

Conscious Capitalism is a business philosophy and practice guided by four pillars: higher purpose, stakeholder orientation, conscious leadership and conscious culture. Businesses that align with the Conscious Capitalism movement understand that business can have a higher purpose that includes, but is more than, earning a profit. They also believe in the human foundation of business and that business must create value for all stakeholders. 

Wednesday, June 15 6-8 pm, Conscious Capitalist New England will host “Conscious Capitalism: A New Way Forward,” a panel discussion to be held as part of The Collaborative Boston Conference, a two-day conference for nonprofits that brings together social innovators to make change in the world. 

Speakers include:

  • Raj Sisodia, FW Olin Distinguished Professor of Global Business Babson College, Co-founder, Conscious Capitalism
  • Matt Silver, Chief Executive Officer, Cambrian Innovation
  • Justin Bakule, Executive Director of the Shared Value Initiative
  • Tom Kochan, Professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology; George Maverick Bunker Professor of Management at the MIT Sloan School of Management
  • Alex Whitmore, Founder and Managing Director, Taza Chocolates
One of the founders of the Conscious Capitalism movement, Raj Sisodia, will begin the program by introducing Conscious Capitalism and sharing highlights from his books: Shakti Leadership: Embracing Feminine and Masculine Power in Business, Firms of Endearment and Conscious Capitalism. Following his remarks, each panelist will present his perspective about building employee engagement, shaping business strategy, shifting power and achieving public and government buy-in while discussing live examples of Conscious Capitalism in their businesses.
