ABC: Always B Collaborating Events

ABC: Always B Collaborating - B Local PDX Events

Connect with fellow B Corp employees working in similar roles, functions, and departments. ABC events provide a venue to discuss opportunities, challenges, and best practices as well as collaborate on collective initiatives. These groups are open to employees of current Certified B Corps, organized by members of our community, and supported by B Local PDX.

We currently have ABC groups for:

  • Human Resources & Culture
    Description: This is a working group for B Corp professionals interested in human resources, sourcing and internal culture issues.

  • Impact & Sustainability Reporting
    Description: Our main goal is to network, exchange knowledge and expertise on sustainability, impact & CSR reporting and best practices. Everything from GRI to SDGs to SASB - we've got your back. It doesn't matter if you work in operations, environmental, marketing, HR, quality, H&S, community affairs, or communications - and if you're a passionate novice or a ''love-to-share" advocate, we welcome you to attend. We offer a platform for open discussion and best practice exchange. Our aim is to generate new thinking on what new trends and best practice sustainability reporting might look like, both in theory and in practice, incorporating all aspects—social, financial, environmental.

  • Marketing
    Description: This ABC group is for those interested in all things marketing! This includes communications, public relations, media, digital marketing, advertising, design, social media, and more! We get together to share knowledge and best practices, as well as organize around shared marketing initiatives to amplify our social impact and B Corp message.
