Virtual Conscious Business Chats in May/June
Now more than ever, connections matter.
COVID-19 has impacted all of us in very significant ways. While each of us try to adjust, adapt, and persevere, physical distancing should not mean that we must “socially” distance ourselves. Human contact is not just about a physical presence with each other, it’s about sharing our lives – the good and the bad – with each other.
To keep and expand our connections, and to help us navigate the challenges COVID-19 is having on our professional lives, CCAZ will be shifting its Conscious Business Chat events to weekly virtual meetings in order for us to continue to share our stories and to learn from each other. No formal agenda. Drop in at any time during our “meeting.” We want to bring people together who believe in the tenets of Conscious Capitalism (CC) to see how those tenets can guide us during this trying time. And, if you’re new to CC, we hope you’ll pick up some ideas on how its tenets intersect with your professional lives and your companies.
Please register for each weekly Virtual Conscious Business Chat using the links below. Please note that the last day to register for our virtual events is the day before the event.
- Wednesday, June 3
- Wednesday, June 10
- Wednesday, June 17 – or Virtual Conscious Business Journey event (TBD)
- Wednesday, June 23
The goal of these new Virtual Conscious Business Chats is to be able to delve into discussions that might help address questions you have – questions like these:
- How can I best lead my organization in a way that demonstrates a conscious and stakeholder-centric purpose?
- How can I communicate in a way that demonstrates concern not only for our bottom line but for each stakeholder and their own concerns and circumstances?
- How can I adjust my business to make this time a win-win-win, balancing the need to “do business” with the added stresses, concerns, and trying circumstances created by this pandemic?
- How can we leverage our conscious culture to provide an experience that clearly shows our stakeholder-centric model?
- Who in our set of stakeholders is most at risk in this current environment? How can we work to alleviate this risk even a little?
- How can we ensure that our higher purpose is not sidelined but instead amplified during this crisis?
It is in these uncertain times that the practice of Conscious Capitalism is even more necessary. Taking care of our stakeholders is of paramount concern, and CCAZ wants to ensure you have every opportunity to take care of your business stakeholders and your communities.
We will be sending out updates regarding future events pending the status of COVID-19 in our community and country. Your safety is of utmost concern to us. Please sign up for our newsletter here for the most up-to-date news about events.

When Will We Have Live, In-Person Events?
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Conscious Capitalism Arizona has postponed all in-person events for the foreseeable future. This said, we have many virtual events available now to attend as well as more to come in the future. Sign up for our newlsetter to be first informed of new virtual events as they become public.
