Conference: 8am-5pm
Reception: 5-7pm

Revolution Hall
1300 SE Stark
Portland, Oregon

The B Corp Leadership Development Pacific Northwest (BLD PNW) Conference is a one-day event organized by B Corps, for B Corps. By inspiring and connecting B Corps and their teams, we build a stronger movement to use business as a force for good.

Our theme for the day is Values to Action, and our mission for the day is to connect to the values that drove us to certify as socially responsible businesses, and then challenge and train ourselves to do MORE in service of our commitment to corporate social responsibility. The day will open with Ted-style talks designed to inspire around internal and external tracks for translating values to action.

Topics will include translating values to emotional intelligence at work, translating values to environmental action, to civic action, to equity and inclusion in hiring, and philanthropy. In the afternoon, we’ll move into longer-format workshops to build on ideas introduced in the morning with deeper training.

Registration is now open for BLD PNW 2018!
