Organizations hold great power in their cultures. Organizations with conscious cultures can provide true care for and healing for individuals, relationships, and communities. Given the pandemic and increasing awareness of racial inequity, the impact of companies' cultures is of paramount importance for organizations to put their attention towards. Fortunately, we have some of the best minds available on this topic coming to share their expertise. Raj Sisodia, co-founder of Conscious Capitalism and most recently author of The Healing Organization, will shed light on how organizations can truly serve its stakeholders in healing and impactful ways during this challenging time. Further, long-time practitioner Bob Chapman, CEO of Barry-Wehmiller and co-author with Raj of Everybody Matters, will provide insight on navigating major changes - like a remote workforce - while maintaining and even improving ones culture. RSVP Today! https://consciouscapitalismboston.org/event-3915973 Speakers: Raj Sisodia is FW Olin Distinguished Professor of Global Business and Whole Foods Market Research Scholar in Conscious Capitalism at Babson College, and Co-Founder and Co-Chairman of Conscious Capitalism Inc. He has a Ph. D. in Business from Columbia University. Raj is co-author of the New York Times bestseller Conscious Capitalism: Liberating the Heroic Spirit of Business (2013) and Wall Street Journal bestseller Everybody Matters (2015). He was named one of “Ten Outstanding Trailblazers of 2010” by Good Business International, and one of the “Top 100 Thought Leaders in Trustworthy Business Behavior” by Trust Across America for 2010 and 2011. Raj received an honorary doctorate from Johnson & Wales University in 2016. Bob Chapman is Chairman and CEO of St. Louis, MO-based Barry-Wehmiller, a $2.5B global manufacturing business with 11,000 team members. The company began as a small pasteurizing and bottle washer business in 1885 and, through acquisition and organic growth, has grown into 12 business units (10 in the US) serving primarily the packaging, paper converting, sheeting and corrugating industries. Chapman became the senior executive of this private company in 1975 at age 30 when the 80-year-old business had $20 million in revenue, outdated technology and a very weak financial position. Despite the obstacles, Chapman applied a unique blend of strategy and culture over the next 40 years in leading Barry-Wehmiller through almost 90 successful acquisitions.
