B Corp 101: Learning to Measure What Matters

Measure everything that matters: your company’s health and impact on others

Are you proud of how your successful company helps make the Okanagan a better place to live?

Proud that you create livelihoods for other people, have solid relationships with the local community and that you don`'t damage the environment?

Good news: There is a global movement of entrepreneurs just like you! And they use a new business tool and certification designed just for them!

B Corps™ benefit society

Certified B Corporations® are a global movement of companies such as Summerhill Pyramid Winery, GreenStep Solutions Inc., and Do Some Good. All were created and are run by people who define success as more than money. And they measure it using the B Impact (B Corp) Assessment.

Join our workshop:

If you`'re a business owner or employee interested in certifying – or simply looking to complete an impact “health check” – this workshop is for you!

Using a free, confidential online tool that is the B Impact Assessment, you will learn how to measure your company’s success and impact in: governance, employees, community and the environment

The assessment will show you the ways your company has a strong purpose and beneficial impact, as well as ways you can improve. If you`'re interested in certifying – or simply looking to do a “health check” of your business, this workshop is for you!

Please bring your laptop, and we’ll bring the refreshments!
