Each Summit workshop will be hosted by a panel of seasoned, purpose-driven business owners, policymakers, and/or nonprofit and public sector leaders. Sessions will focus on three key areas:

Operational—How to run an efficient, purposeful, and impactful business with no greenwashing
Aspirational—How to leverage the position of local business in policy advocacy to affect positive change in our communities
CommUNITY—How to engage with like-minded local people, businesses, and organizations to drive more meaningful change together

Thursday, November 9th - 9AM - 6PM at Bread & Salt
200+ values-aligned local businesses

Why should I come?

The (Doing) Business For Good Summit offers a rare, centralized space to get to know 200+ values-aligned professionals from San Diego-based organizations and public agencies. From running a purpose-driven business to learning how to advocate for local policies that benefit everyone in our community, there’s something for everyone!

“Great people, well organized. Really enjoyed seeing how Business for Good is working to improve San Diego communities. That was evident in every interaction.”

“My favorite part was being in person with everyone at a cool venue in Barrio Logan! The event had a good flow – not too long, not too short, and the happy hour after was perfect.”

“It was wonderful connecting with like-minded people. I think the timing of it all was perfect, nothing felt too long or too short. There was enough moving around to not feel stationary or bored.”

“The keynote speaker was really great – informative and entertaining. I loved the breakout sessions too. Lunch was tasty and the happy hour was a great end of the day.”
