BLD – B Corp Leadership Development
BLD is an event designed by the B Corp community to dig into how we can drive value beyond certification.
BLD Ontario 2019
This year’s theme for BLD Ontario is “Everyone’s A Leader”. No matter what your title or role, as B Corps, we are in an especially unique position of truly walking the talk and exemplifying what it means to do well and do good. Our conference allows everyone to have an equal voice, so let’s learn the skills and tools that we need to share that story and inspire others!

Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and nonprofits alone. The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.
B Corps form a community of leaders and drive a global movement of people using business as a force for good. The values and aspirations of the B Corp community are embedded in the B Corp Declaration of Interdependence.
