2015 CELEBRATION OF COLORADO INDUSTRIES: B CORPORATIONS

THURSDAY, MAY 7, 2015 – 7:30AM

NOTE NEW TIME AND LOCATION! Quarterly Forum continues to celebrate Colorado industries in this third program of the series as we discuss the growing movement of Colorado Certified B Corporations, companies that are using their business as a force for good in the world. QF will bring together thought leaders within the Certified B Corporations and benefit corporation movements to explore what happens when companies pledge to consider the effect of decisions not only on shareholders, but also on other stakeholders, such as workers, community, and the environment and provide transparency on their performance. The program will feature Christine Perich, president of New Belgium Brewing; Ryan Martens, founder and CTO of Rally; and Andrew Kassoy, co-founder of B Lab, the non-profit behind B Corporations and national public benefit corporation legislation. Steve Hochhauser, former chairman and CEO of Johns Manville, will moderate. There are more than 1,200 Certified B Corporations globally, including well-known companies like Ben & Jerry’s, Patagonia, and Seventh Generation, with more than 50 in Colorado, including New Belgium Brewing and Rally Software. A separate but related emerging trend is the public benefit corporation, a new corporate structure that provides legal protection and support for companies with a focus on the broader set of stakeholder interests. In addition, we will present QF college scholarships to outstanding young people with great need and aspiration. This event is reserved for QF members.

Today's Quarterly Forum is Tomorrow's Civico.

Exciting new changes are coming soon!

In 1999, Quarterly Forum (QF) was founded to provide a place for emerging executives to dream more, learn more, do more and become more while coordinating civic activities amongst its members.

Today, our mission is to educate, inspire and connect the next generation of community leaders from the public, private and social sectors who together will build new levels of leadership capacity for future generations.

And in 2019, big changes are coming. While our mission will remain the same, the future of the organization is more exciting than ever. Check back soon for updates and announcements.
