    Welcome to Conscious Capitalism® in the National Capital Area!

    Doing business with a higher purpose.

    Welcome to Conscious Capitalism® in the National Capital Area!

    We are a member-based community of principle-centered business professionals, freethinking entrepreneurs, non-profits, lawmakers, community leaders and others who are driven by the desire to make a positive, measurable difference in the world. We do this through our sharing, teaching and application of the four principles of Conscious Capitalism®.

    We believe that business is good because it creates value. We believe it is:

    • Ethical because it is based on voluntary exchange
    • Noble because it can elevate our existence



    Conscious Capitalism® is a movement dedicated to elevating humanity through business.


    Conscious Capitalism® is a way of thinking about capitalism and  business that better reflects where we are in the human journey, the state of our world today, and the innate potential of business to make a positive impact on the world. Conscious businesses are galvanized by higher purposes

    that serve, align, and integrate the interests of all their major stakeholders.

     Their higher state of consciousness makes visible to them the interdependencies that exist across all stakeholders, allowing them to discover and harvest synergies from situations that otherwise seem replete with trade-offs.


    Core Principles

    Conscious Capitalism® comes to life as it is applied to business. Its four core principles support leaders to create value for all.

    These principles are Higher Purpose, Stakeholder Orientation, Conscious Leadership, and Conscious Culture.

    Washington, DC


    Higher Purpose: Recognizing that every business has a purpose that includes, but is more than, making money. By focusing on its Higher Purpose, a business inspires, engages and energizes its stakeholders.



    Stakeholder Orientation: Recognizing the interdependent nature of life and the human foundations of business, a business needs to create value with and for its various stakeholders (customers, employees, vendors, investors, communities, the environment, etc.). Like the life forms in an ecosystem, healthy stakeholders lead to a healthy business system.


    Conscious Leadership: Human social organizations are created and guided by leaders – people who see a path and inspire others to travel along the path. Conscious Leaders understand and embrace the Higher Purpose of business and focus on creating value for and harmonizing the interests of the business stakeholders. They recognize the integral role of culture and purposefully cultivate Conscious Culture.


    Conscious Culture: This is the ethos – the values, principles, practices – underlying the social fabric of a business, which permeates the atmosphere of a business and connects the stakeholders to each other and to the purpose, people and processes that comprise the company.

    The Conscious Capitalist Credo


    We believe that business is good because it creates value, it is ethical because it is based on voluntary exchange, it is noble because it can elevate our existence and it is heroic because it lifts people out of poverty and creates prosperity. Free enterprise capitalism is the most powerful system for social cooperation and human progress ever conceived. It is one of the most compelling ideas we humans have ever had. But we can aspire to even more.
