Many businesses now talk about a “triple bottom line,” where success is no longer measured solely by profit, but also by the impact on people and the planet. What are some models for this type of impact entrepreneurship, where businesses are making positive contributions to the welfare of their employees, their community, and the world more broadly? How is building social impact into your business’ DNA different than traditional corporate social responsibility? What businesses advantages can be gained? Is it possible to incorporate a social mission into your business if you don’t already have one? What is B Corps certification and what does it have to do with social impact? Panelists will share their perspectives on these issues to spark a discussion about how more companies can incorporate a social mission into their core business model.
This moderated fire-side chat styled panel consists of:
 
Founder & CEO at PurPics 
 
Beth Johnson      
Program Director at Blue Morning
 
President & CEO at Global eHealth Solutions LLC
 
Brynne Potter

PARKING: The Market Street Parking Garage is conveniently located across the street; however, validation is NOT provided at the event. The nearby Tin Whistle Irish Pub offers 2 hours of validation, so you might consider having drinks or dinner there afterwards.
