B Corp Certification Support Cohort Program
Sponsored by B Local PDX
Four group class sessions with private coaching element to support completing the B Impact Assessment to achieve B Corp Certification
Every other Thursday from 3:30-5:00pm starting September 20th
$1,000 per company (up to two representatives per company), with at least two Inclusivity Scholarships spaces at a reduced rate of $400 per company.
The path to B Corp certification is wide in both depth and breadth, with best-in-class standards and questions designed to poke and prod every angle of your business. The B Corp Certification Support Cohort Program, led by a long-time B Corp champion and expert Mike Mercer of MMercer Consulting, aims to demystify the assessment and help you chart a course to the magic number of 80+ points to become a Certified B Corporation. Over the course of four sessions in six weeks, the cohort will run through all of the relevant details of the B Impact Assessment in a classroom-style setting, while also providing four hours of 1-on-1 assistance to address your specific certification needs. From companies just beginning their certification journey to those close to certification, or even re-certifying B Corps, this cohort aims to help you discover your business’ unique path to creating a durable prosperity for all of your stakeholders.
Inclusiveness and ensuring diverse representation are guiding principles at B Local PDX, with a goal that all companies can participate. To ensure this is possible, B Local PDX is providing financial support to reduce the cost of attendance $400 for at least two minority-owned or otherwise underrepresented businesses. This lower rate is made possible by the support of our community through ticket sales and our Learning Lunch series, along with a reduction in cost from MMercer Consulting as well.
