The Movement

More than a philosophy, Conscious Capitalism is a movement of professionals coming together for actionable global impact through business. To learn more about Conscious Capitalism Inc., click here. See below how our core four tenets come together to drive business as a force for good.


Elevating humanity through business begins with knowing WHY your company exists. Without this, you have no compass to get and stay focused on your true north. Businesses should exist for reasons beyond just making a profit. We see profit as a necessary means to achieving your purpose—not as an end in and of itself.


Critical to achieving your purpose is to value and care for EVERYONE that touches your business. This includes your employees, customers, suppliers, partners, investors, community, environment, and sometimes even your competition. Motivate all stakeholders by creating “win-win-win” outcomes for all who are impacted by your business’s decisions.


Conscious businesses cannot exist without conscious leaders. They are the stewards, the pioneers of good. They keep the business focused on its purpose. They reject a zero-sum, trade-off-oriented view of business and seek creative, synergistic solutions for all stakeholders. Without better leaders, there is no better world. Period.


The culture of your business is its heartbeat. Without a healthy one, the business will ultimately fail. Conscious cultures are as unique as the people who comprise them, but commonalities include trust, accountability, transparency, integrity, loyalty, egalitarianism, fairness, personal growth, and love and care.

We value inclusivity, innovation and good people (just ask our members!).

If you are interested in a key volunteer role to step up your involvement in this movement, we want to hear from you!

CCLA is committed to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion and believe in elevating the voices and profiles of individuals from communities that have too often been marginalized, including Black, Latinx, Asian, Indigenous and other people of color, people from working class backgrounds, women and LGBTQIA+ people. Therefore, we welcome and strongly encourage applications from people with these identities.
