August 3rd Chance Meetings: Social Benefit Companies— A Mission Beyond Profit A year ago the Business Roundtable Group issued what is a profound statement for global corporations. CEOs agreed that corporations should benefit society as a whole, not just shareholders— a fundamental shift to a decades-long approach of profit first. Companies have learned that being a good community steward is also good for business and that employees, communities, and the natural environment are not expendable. A myriad of factors have contributed to this new lens, but Benefit Corporations (B Corps) have led the way. Since becoming a legal entity in 2010, B Corps have enabled businesses to create a solid mission-driven operating foundation to guide them through growth, capital raises, and leadership changes. Consequently, B Corps are committed to a high standard of accountability and transparency with regard to society and the environment while still pursuing profitable goals. Want to learn more about the advantages, workings, and impacts of B Corps? Join us at Virtual Chance Meetings on Monday, August 3rd from 5-6 pm to hear from local experts Fred Keller, Founder and Chair of Cascade Engineering, Bill Klyn, former Patagonia Marketing Manager, and Jack Hartpence, Co-Founder and CEO of Powwater. We will explore questions such as: How do you balance profit vs. social good in your B Corp. Specific metrics? What role do employees/staff play in a B corp.? How do you broadly measure employee benefit? How do you engage external stakeholders to determine internal priorities? Please join us and bring your own questions!
