Growing Business Success with Conscious Capitalism @ Sprout CoWorking
Mar 27 @ 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Customer loyalty, employee engagement, leadership integrity, community partnership. These are aspirations shared by progressive business leaders who understand that top-line growth and bottom-line profitability increase as a result of a holistic management strategy.

In his 2019 annual letter to CEOs, Larry Fink of BlackRock writes:

Profits are essential if a company is to effectively serve all of its stakeholders over time – not only shareholders, but also employees, customers, and communities. Similarly, when a company truly understands and expresses its purpose, it functions with the focus and strategic discipline that drive long-term profitability. Purpose unifies management, employees, and communities.


Conscious Capitalism ( is a global movement energized by the credo of Higher Purpose, Stakeholder Orientation, Conscious Leadership and Conscious Culture. Let’s bring Conscious Capitalism to Rhode Island.

We invite business leaders to join us for a discussion about tangible ways to act on the four pillars of Conscious Capitalism.

Why Attend?

  • Learn about the four pillars of Conscious Capitalism and the global movement.
  • Hear examples from Rhode Island business owners about Conscious Capitalism in action.
  • Identify at least two concrete opportunities for applying Conscious Capitalism in your own business.
  • Form new relationships with other mindful business leaders who share a vision for a thriving 21st century Rhode Island business sector, focused on how business can and does impact our global society today.

Art Exhibition Opening Reception featuring Michele Keir @ Sprout CoWorking Warren
Apr 6 @ 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM

New art exhibit at Sprout Coworking

Michele Keir was five years old when she overheard her kindergarten teacher tell her mother that she was an artist. That was the moment she knew… “I am a creative person who loves color.” Using training from both Pratt Institute and RISD, Michele made a career as a graphic designer, product designer and potter. Many non-profit organizations have been the recipients of her talent. Most recently she raised thousands of research dollars for the American Parkinson Disease Association through the donation of hundreds of digital art paintings.

Michele has Parkinson Disease. Over the past year she has used art for personal therapy. Never before had she created art without a teacher, boss or client limiting her creative process. This endeavor has not only given her joy but has overfilled her house with art. In her attempt to have her art seen by others, Michelle recently began entering local juried exhibitions.

Join Michele for an opening of her show on Saturday, April 6th from 1 to 3 p.m. at The Gallery at Sprout CoWorking, 489 Main St. The exhibit will be on display through April 30th. Regular gallery hours are Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
