Why Attend a Conscious Capitalism Event?

September meeting: 

Optimax Tour:

Self-Managed Teams and Teal in Action

Wednesday September 25th, 2019, 5:30 – 7:00 pm

By evolving toward a flat organizational structure and creating self-empowered teams over the past 15 years, Optimax has grown from $3 million to $40 million in revenue and now employs more than 400 people.

You can also tune in to an For the EVOLution of Business podcast with CEO Rick Plympton to get a peek inside a radical new paradigm for business, plus a few tips on how to get started on your own journey:
– What to do instead of consensus-based decision-making
– What to do instead of strategic planning
– How to align benefits packages and reward systems to reinforce your culture
– How to scale your culture to support “astronomical” growth (even if NASA isn’t sending your products into space)

Or, check out the the podcast with Beyond Teal’s Bruce Peters  on how he helped Optimax create self-managed teams to scale their culture and maximize their people!

October meeting: 

Employing the Formerly Incarcerated Panel

Wednesday October 16th, 2019, 5:30 – 7:00 pm

At The Center For Open Hiring, a program from Greyston in Yonkers, NY, where for the past 35 years, they have been practicing “open hiring” with no interviews and no background checks, while also providing the needed support services (addiction, mental health, childcare, transportation, etc) to help them keep their jobs. They’re now sharing what they’ve learned and Rochester is going to be the VERY FIRST pilot! Ty Hookway, who is leading the local effort through CleanCraft, will be on the panel and will be hosting us at their brand new location on Rutter St.

Also on the panel will be Jes Scannell, Director of Career Empowerment Initiatives at Foodlink, to talk about their career fellowship program that recently celebrated the graduation of their first class!

We’ll also have Sarah Fletcher, who leads the Center for Employment Opportunities, part of a national organization that provides transitional employment for the formerly incarcerated.

Moderating our panel will be Kit Miller of the MK Gandhi Institute, who has led several programs to bring community members to local prisons to meet with the soon-to-be-released inmates to discuss their challenges and fears of reintegrating into society.
