JUST B: Cultivating an Authentic and Impactful Workplace

Oregon Convention Center: Room C125-C126
Track: Organizational Best Practices

Yes, it’s possible.  It’s possible to use business for good and sustain a successful company while being a socially just, environmentally beneficial and equitable organization. Workplace frameworks such as JUST and B Corp challenge mission-driven companies to be authentic by putting their principles into action.

Join firms who translated company values into actions and embarked upon the journey of JUST self-disclosure and B Corp certification. Learn about the fundamentals of the JUST label, and journeys of a team in their certification beginnings, a well-established engineering company, and a firm continuously pushing the envelope in social equity initiatives. Learn of their experiences and challenges and how they’ve successfully engaged employees, reimagined the business, and implemented holistic change internally and externally.  Then walk the journey yourself and identify where your company values can evolve to JUST and B Corp programs.  Collaborate with the presenters to reveal actionable tasks to implement change at your organization that can be taken in the next 30 days.
