Conscious Conversation on Suppliers
Please register on our website: https://consciouscapitalismboston.org/event-2983277 Conscious business practices must extend beyond the company’s internal practices to those of their partners and suppliers. Indeed, you’re only as conscious as your weakest supply chain partner. Business leaders need to be aware of the people, processes and systems that provide the raw materials and services that the company requires. And practices in the supply chain aren’t just a risk; they can be also be an advantage. Companies can build brands around how well they engage with suppliers on social and environmental issues, such as working with local communities of color, ensuring living wages or reducing carbon emissions. Thus, businesses that strive to be conscious pay particular attention to how goods are transported, how laborers are treated, and from whom, where and how they source their raw materials and services. Join us for a discussion on how business leaders seek out the right suppliers, understand their relationship to supply chains, detect and monitor supply chain issues, and use their supply chain to their advantage. Through what lens should companies make their sourcing decisions? How can companies large and small work their partners to ensure conscious practices throughout the supply chain? How can suppliers translate their conscious practices to the advantage of their business customers?

What we're about

Conscious Capitalism is a new paradigm for operating corporations; one that recognizes the power of capitalism to improve the human condition and create enduring value for all stakeholders, while advocating for more conscious leadership and fostering conscious cultures.

We are the the Boston local chapter of the conscious leadership & business movement which is also non-profit organisation called Conscious Capitalism.

We invite anyone who is curious about these ideas and those who already embrace them to join us as we reach high and strive to create change in our society.
