In celebration of B Corporation Month, we're hosting our next CCLA Community Night MeetUp at Burnham Benefits, a certified B Corporation located in Downtown Los Angeles. We've joined forces with our friends from B Local Los Angeles who will be on hand to provide resources about what it means to be a B Corporation and how to certify.
CCLA Community Nights provide an opportunity for members to connect with each other and for newcomers to learn more about Conscious Capitalism and its thriving Los Angeles Chapter. Join us for some drinks, light appetizers and conscious connections!

GETTING THERE & PARKING:
Consider taking the Metro as Burnham Benefits is located directly above the 7th Street Metro Center. If you choose to drive, parking is available in the building, however, it is not the most affordable of options in the area. We recommend parking across the street at Joe's or on Figueroa and 7th near Target. Rideshare and Metro is always recommended!WHENApril 02, 2019 at 6pmWHEREBurnham Benefits

It’s not your imagination.
More and more businesses are adopting a purpose-driven, conscious approach to business practices, with an an increased awareness for sustainability – addressing economic, environmental and societal issues alike. There’s more recognition that businesses are not solely economic entities but part of our society with serious responsibilities. This notion was amplified in BlackRock CEO Larry Fink’s annual letter to S&P CEOs which stated that moving forward, the companies it invests in must also serve a social purpose. Great news and encouraging to fellow Conscious Capitalists who have long held that without a sense of purpose, no company, either public or private, can achieve its full potential.Read more

It is no secret that B Corporations are better companies – better for workers, better for communities and better for the environment. At CCLA, we see a the B Corporation movement and certification as an invaluable tool for furthering the practice of Conscious Capitalism.
This is why on October 10th, 2017 we hosted our first of many B Corp focused educational initiatives in collaboration with B Local, at the gorgeous Macher offices in Venice. And how lucky are we to have a thriving B Corporation community here in Los Angeles?! B Local LA is a community devoted to knowledge sharing through best practices and creating a more sustainable community in Los Angeles.
Attendees were led through a deep dive into B Corp organizations, step by step they were guided through the assessment process and were given valuable insights into the nuances of becoming a B Corp. Certification processes can always be challenging, but thanks to this workshop, for all of those attending, the process was much faster and easier as they received support and guidance from those who have gone through it already.
Many thanks to our gracious hosts including presenter, Andrea Chase, Marketing & Product Director, Falcon Waterfree Technologies, Francesco Barbera of Barbera Corporate Law, P.C., and Derek Hydon, President at Macher.
Oh, November. We instinctively associate you with crisp air, the holiday buzz starting to creep into our consciousness, reunions with loved ones, and of course, giving thanks. Yet we challenge our community to stop and consider how the notion of GIVING can be the purest example of being grateful. And who better to lead us into what giving really means, than Brit Gilmore, President of The Giving Keys, the LA based social enterprise, jewelry and lifestyle brand whose primary mission is to help employ others impacted by homelessness.
With a 288k+ Insta following, a team exceeding 70 employees, and revenues of $8.6 million last year, it’s obvious that The Giving Key's passion for merging fashion and philanthropy is speaking to consumers. Loudly.Read more
