This invitation (at the end of this email) was forwarded to me with a request to pass it along to any for-profit organizations in the creative sector who wish to obtain BCorps Certification.
Here’s some info about the event from the Eventbrite page:
BDC and SREDA are pleased to present Learning About Impact: The B Corp Movement
The B Corp Certification identifies companies that are using their businesses as a force for good.
However, this movement is bigger than just individual companies; together, Beneficial Corporations make up a community of entrepreneurs that are transforming how we understand corporate social responsibility. Together, they fuel the B Corp movement, where businesses strive not only to be the best in the world, but the best for the world!
This reception serves as an introduction to the B Corp movement and certification process, moderated by Carla Heim from Canadian B Corp, BDC. This is an opportunity to hear how B Corps, including Saskatchewan's own Tentree, are using their businesses as a force for good while still maintaining successful and profitable business models. Also featured is a panel of local companies with strong social purposes who will discuss how Saskatchewan businesses can measure their impact in areas related to:
· employee engagement
· social responsibility
· environmental footprint
Wondering if this event is for you?
You are likely:
· a business owner or employee that is purpose driven interested in becoming B Corp Certified or connecting with like-minded entrepreneurs
SREDA is partnering with BDC to bring awareness of the Beneficial Corporations (BCorps) certification process to the Saskatoon Region. BDC will be doing a presentation on BCorps on January 24th.
