The Future of Hiring

Being a CEO and leader of a mission-driven company has its own unique opportunities and responsibilities. Opportunities because you are able to use your business as a force for good effecting a much broader set of stakeholders, intentionally looking for ways to affect people, planet, and profit in a positive way. But also a responsibility because you understand how capitalism can be leveraged for good. You know what the business is capable of, and you have an expectation that focusing strictly on the bottom line is not an option.

To support those who are on the journey of running mission-driven companies, Big Path is proud to present the Impact CEO Series, which will be a monthly virtual webinar that will include panels, groups discussions, and individual speakers for the purpose of engaging, supporting and raising our collective game on what it means to run a mission-driven company.

See you on the Path!

The Future of Hiring

How The Largest Health And Social Crises Of Our Era Have Changed The Game

For many leaders, the pandemic & social unrest of 2020 generated a unique opportunity to rethink, realign, and rapidly evolve for a better and more efficient hiring future. Despite record unemployment, the stage is set for a great rehire that is already underway in many consumer sectors. Conventional hiring practices, boundaries and barriers have been challenged and replaced with more nimble, equitable, and flexible approaches that are here to stay.

Watch our Series on Anti-Racism

Created by potrace 1.15, written by Peter Selinger 2001-2017

In the first webinar, we focused on structural racism. How it shows up in our daily lives, the role that capitalism and the private sector play, and how the last few months have impacted the thinking and approach of CEOs, including the unique role of white CEOs. We have an incredible set of leaders to help us begin this series.

In Part 2, we focused on the internal anti-racist work that CEOs and companies can pursue. What does it mean to be an anti-racist individual in our society? What does it mean to imbed anti-racism in culture and hiring practices? Is there a difference between Diversity, Equity & Inclusion and anti-racism? We will hear from both CEOs who are doing the work and thought leaders who support the work.

In Part 3, we focused on the external anti-racist work that companies can pursue. How does a company identify its authentic and sustainable role in the fight against racist policies and practices? Are there best practices that impact companies can emulate? What kind of anti-racist goals can companies set? Are there pitfalls that can be avoided? We will hear from both CEOs who are doing the work and thought leaders who support the work.
