Looking to the Future: Purpose Driven Enterprise

Thu April 8 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am


Moderator: Derek Earl, WTC Winnipeg

Andrew Boardman, Manoverboard
Brendan Reimer, Assiniboine Credit Union

Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and non-profits alone. Therefore, creating a purpose driven enterprise can allow your business to focus its core values, creating profits while empowering and bettering the surrounding community. This webinar will centre around creating an understanding purpose driven enterprise through the B Corp community. As B Corps use profits and growth to a greater end: this webinar will discuss the positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.

Learning Outcomes:
1. What is a purpose driven enterprise?
2. How other Canadian companies have achieved success through becoming a purpose driven enterprise
3. The benefits of becoming B-corps certified for Manitoban businesses
