VBSR’s 31st Annual Conference will explore

how businesses can

shape the future through

three themes:

Anti Racism

Business Resiliency

The Climate Crisis

Businesses have the power to build a just, thriving, and transformative economy that works for all people and the planet.


Working together, we can transform our workplaces, communities, and industries by sharing knowledge, creating solutions, dismantling systems of oppression, and advocating for policies that promote positive social and environmental change.

This full-day virtual event will include a keynote address, 11 interactive workshops, as well as time for networking, meeting our exhibitors, and wellness. Topics will explore the unique issues and opportunities that each of our three key themes present, as well as the areas where they intersect.

Attendees will emerge inspired, connected with forward-thinking leaders, and empowered with resources and concrete action steps to drive change.

Can't attend the conference on May 20th?

All workshops will be recorded and the recordings will be shared with all conference registrants after the event takes place.
