Building upon this progress, we can envision a day when the conscious practice of capitalism will be regarded as the norm, businesses create prosperity for all stakeholders, and business leaders take pride in being business leaders for making the world a better place.
SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) January 11, 2018
A clear sign that more and more business leaders around the world are committed to pursuing purposes beyond just profit, Conscious Capitalism International begins 2018 with more than 40 chapters dedicated to elevating humanity through business. Recently activated chapters in the United States, Colombia, Denmark and South Africa now advocate for Conscious Capitalism in 14 countries on six continents.
This significant milestone comes as the organization and supporters of its namesake movement celebrate the 5th anniversary of Harvard Business Review’s publishing "Conscious Capitalism: Liberating the Heroic Spirit of Business" (first edition, January 15, 2013). Co-authored by Whole Foods Market co-founder and CEO, John Mackey, and F.W. Olin distinguished professor of Global Business at Babson College, Raj Sisodia, "Conscious Capitalism" ignited a global movement that is fundamentally changing the way business is both practiced and perceived. A New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, more than 145,000 copies of "Conscious Capitalism" have been sold to date. "Conscious Capitalism," along with its principles, has garnered favorable reviews from notable business celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey and legendary Harvard Business School management professor Bill George.
“With so much work to be done in overcoming instability, division, and poverty, it’s encouraging to see so much interest in and support for business elevating humanity,” said Alexander McCobin, chief executive officer for Conscious Capitalism International. “Building upon this progress, we can envision a day when the conscious practice of capitalism will be regarded as the norm, businesses create prosperity for all stakeholders, and business leaders take pride in being business leaders for making the world a better place."
