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 program 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.
Through their practices and business models, companies are at the heart of sustainable development issues. Using the BIA tool, this intensive training will allow participants to measure a company's performance concerning its governance, employees, customers, community, and environment. Furthermore, they will identify opportunities for improvement, especially those that significantly impact developing effective action plans.
This program is suitable for internal leaders (employees in management, HR, training, development, quality, audit functions) and external leaders (consultants and advisors) exercising at least 80% of their business in Switzerland.
In between these two sessions, the participants will complete a Case Study Exercise.
The program also includes a Refresh Session Workshop after full completion of the course.
Please note that to become an Affiliated B Leader, participants will have to support a company of their choice in the B Corp journey until the verification phase. Only Affiliate B Leaders will be listed on B Lab Switzerland's website.
