A Message From The President
Hello 2021, and a special “hello” to all Conscious Capitalists in San Diego. I, for one, am very excited about the many things we have in store for this year; not the least of which is actually planning for some in-person events a little later in year.
It is my honor to address you as the newly elected President of the Conscious Capitalism San Diego Chapter. I’m pleased to be working with an outstanding slate of Board and Advisory members. Please join me in welcoming our 2021 Board – Kori Joneson, Immediate Past President; Johannah Warren, Treasurer; Jeff Blanton, Secretary; Amber Gough, Director; Haby Barry, Director; and Linda Burritt, Director. I’d also like to introduce our Chapter Outreach Manager, Tammy Temple.
Our focus this year is on providing you, our conscious community, with a series of engaging and informative events that are tailored to your unique Conscious Capitalism journey. I’m excited to announce our Quarterly Senior Business Leader series which will feature insights and best practices from local or national leaders. This will be a C-Suite perspective specifically for C-Suite members. Concurrently, we will be rolling out a new event series focusing on the Stakeholder, featuring a diverse speaker/presenter base hand-picked from a wide range of stakeholder orientations. More info coming soon.
As always, we seek and value your input. To that end please be on the lookout for a newly designed feedback form. We’re very interested to know what’s working, what can be improved, and how we can better live and articulate our message. Thank you in advance.
I know I speak for the entire organization when I say we look forward to connecting with you, supporting you, and learning from you in the months ahead.
Del Lewis, CCSD Board President
2021 Events Kickoff with Alexander McCobin & Curtis Hite on “The Future of Conscious Capitalism After COVID”.
Thursday, April 22nd at 8:00 PT
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.
The future of the Conscious Capitalism movement is brighter than ever before. Join us as we CCSD hosts 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.
Your Story – Looking Forward
Focusing on healthy capitalism where business creates value for all stakeholders is not a win/lose proposition. When all stakeholders and value systems are looked at as equally important it provides an environment where all can flourish.
With the continued impact of Covid-19, 2021 provides an opportunity to center and focus on value systems. How can companies be creative in these challenging times using their higher purpose and value creation as a compass? How can you?
AND, how are you already doing so? We’d love to hear and learn from your story. Fill out this simple form to share. We’d like to highlight your story in a Business Profile in an upcoming newsletter.
Thank you for your continued support of our evolving community. For showing up as a conscious stakeholder. For living and spreading the principles of Conscious Capitalism. Your participation will help ensure Conscious Capitalism becomes the norm in San Diego, and beyond. Your kind contributions will help Conscious Capitalism San Diego support you in this journey. We look forward to connecting with you all throughout the year!
