The Future of Conscious Capitalism After COVID
When: April 22, 2021
Time: 08:00 AM - 09:00 AM PDT
10 years ago, Conscious Capitalism wasn’t taken seriously by mainstream businesses. 1 year ago, we were gaining traction with the BlackRock, the Business Roundtable, and World Economic Forum all adopting our principles. Then COVID hit, and the media called it an “Acid Test” for our principles, predicting that businesses would jettison them to survive. Instead, more businesses are coming to our movement now than ever before.
So, what is the future of the Conscious Capitalism movement?
Join CCSD as we host Alexander McCobin, CEO of Conscious Capitalism, Inc. and Curtis Hite, CEO of Improving and a board member of CCI. We will discuss the implications of these changes and what the future looks like for businesses and the Conscious Capitalism movement.
When: Thursday, April 22, 2021, 8:00 am (PDT)
Registration Fee: FREE to all attendees
Alexander McCobin is the CEO of Conscious Capitalism, Inc., a role he has served in since 2017.
In his youth, Alexander’s entrepreneurial drive led him to start and run several businesses, both for profit and nonprofit. During college he didn’t see business as a way to change the world, he thought the way to do that was through academia. So, he began a PhD program in Philosophy at Georgetown University. As he began to work on a dissertation regarding corporate moral responsibility, he attended the first Conscious Capitalism Annual Conference in 2013, where he was inspired by business leaders dedicated to changing the world. Within a year, he left Georgetown without the PhD and dedicated himself to running one of the businesses he had started during undergrad. Before he joined CCI’s staff, he turned that organization into a multimillion-dollar operation.

In 2007 Since then, Improving has been recognized by the Inc 500/5000 as one of the fastest growing private companies in the United States for 9 consecutive years. Furthermore, the company has received more than 30 recognitions as one of the best place work in the US by Inc Magazine, Columbus Business First, Texas Monthly, and the Minneapolis Business Journal.

Conscious Capitalism is a way of thinking about capitalism and business that better reflects where we are in the human journey, the state of our world today, and the innate potential of business to make a positive impact on the world.
