Interdependence: 2017 Champions Retreat
October 3 -5, 2017 | Toronto, Canada
Each year, the global B Corp Community comes together to affirm and advance our commitment to harnessing the power of business to create a more shared and durable prosperity. This year our focus is on Interdependence, the recognition that we are each dependent on one another and thus responsible for each other and future generations. For us to be successful in moving towards our vision of a shared and durable prosperity over the next ten years, we must live up to our belief in interdependence by aligning and collaborating with other movements fighting for social, environmental and economic justice.
Join the leaders of the global B Corp community as we gather in Toronto in October 3rd-5th to celebrate our milestone of 10 years as a powerful community of practice and to envision our next 10 years of servant leadership, collective action, and impact.
Registration is only open to certified B Corporations.
