Conscious Capitalism Chapters

Chapters exist to connect, inspire, and activate Conscious Capitalists in cities around the world. Through events, programs and virtual gatherings, Chapters strive to develop a strong and sustainable ecosystem of businesses changing the practice and perception of capitalism by being the greatest force for good in their city. Chapters are made up of a diverse group of business leaders representing the broader community who are committed to living out the principles of Conscious Capitalism. 

Purpose

The purpose of Chapters is to connect, inspire, and activate
Conscious Capitalists in our community to put people back at the center of business. The vision of Chapters is to create a thriving, sustainable community of individuals committed to driving business as the greatest force for good in their city.

Activities

Chapters plan and host a minimum of 5 events per year. Each event should include a connection, inspiration, and activation component. Connecting business leaders focuses on relationship building, inspiration often occurs through storytelling, and activation allows attendees to see firsthand how businesses in their city are applying the principles of Conscious Capitalism. Chapters are encouraged to host events with like-minded groups and locally based businesses practicing Conscious Capitalism. 

Creation

All Chapters start as Communities first in order to build a solid network of engaged business leaders committed to building awareness in their city. Over time, Conscious Capitalism Communities can grow into Chapters. This growth pathway is currently only offered for US based Communities, however, we are exploring ways to expand the Chapter Program to include more International Affiliates.

Operations

Chapters are led by formal Leadership Teams of seven to nine business leaders with defined roles and committees of volunteers to support the Chapter including: Events, Sponsorship, and Marketing. We have outlined best practices on how to structure your Leadership Team in our Chapter Guidebook. Conscious Capitalism Inc. provides the systems and resources you need to operationalize your programs and events including: Communication and Event platforms, an Online Chapter Leader Group to share ideas, a customizable private group on the Community Platform, a Chapter Program Resources website and more!
