Greater Vancouver Board of Trade is pleased to once again offer the ESG Fundamentals Microcredential, in partnership with BCIT.
During this program, participants will learn or enhance their existing understanding of the language and strategy of meaningful ESG impact. Everyone will complete a series of assignments designed to explore their current impacts and develop a strategy to build on what is already being implemented in their organizations. Participants will graduate with knowledge on how to further engage relevant stakeholders to go farther, faster, together.
Participants will learn from industry leaders in environmental, social, and governance impacts and put their learning into action through a series of hands-on activities that build into their ESG Roadmap.
This program is facilitated by Tessa Jordan, Program Head for the Sustainable Business Leadership and Faculty in the Communication Department at BCIT.
