B Leaders is a training program that provides knowledge and methods to professionals who want to lead their organization through to the B Corp certification.
It is also a community of practitioners who exchange ideas to find solutions to social and environmental challenges.
What is the B Leaders Program?
B Leaders is a training programme designed by B Lab Switzerland, to empower people who want to lead organizations through the B Corp certification and work with businesses to measure what matters. This program is suitable for internal leaders (employees in management, HR, training and development, quality, audit functions) as well as external leaders (consultants and advisors).
Through their practices and business models, companies are at the heart of sustainable development issues. By using the BIA tool, this intensive training will allow participants to measure a company's performance with respect to its governance, employees, customers, community and environment. Furthemore, they will be able to identify opportunities for improvement, especially those that generate greater impact, in order to develop effective action plans.
In between these two sessions, the participants will be required to complete a Case Study Group Exercise. In this Case Study, every group of participants will be given a mock company case to assess on its social and environmental impacts. They will have the opportunity to present it during a dedicated session on the last day of the course, providing them with valuable insights into the BIA and strengthen their knowledge by putting the theory into practice.
In addition, the programme includes an Online Refresh Session after full completion of the course.
Last but not least, participants that will have supported a company through the whole certification process, will become affiliated B Leaders and will be able to offer their services as such.
Duration: 3.5 days bootcamp
