Find Purpose in Phoenix: 5 Conferences You Should Know About
Interested in elevating your passions, sleuthing your next career move, or building relationships with other purpose-driven and impact-focused leaders?
Conferences are a great way to network, learn, and grow. My attendance at the 2015 Net Impact Conference led to two weeks abroad building solar panels in Costa Rica, a fellowship in Oakland, and a career pivot leading to employment with a local B Corporation.
Conferences usually don’t come cheap, so it’s even better when they land in your backyard or in a desirable location (sun, pools, and flowering cacti — hello!). Scholarship and volunteer opportunities may also be available.
Attend one of the events below and unleash your purpose in Phoenix this Fall or Spring. Topics covered include conscious capitalism, corporate citizenship, diversity and inclusion, impact investing, materiality, social entrepreneurship, and sustainability to name a few.
