What Is SoCon?
We are a voluntary social network centered around the furthering any and all of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations. At the same time, the SoCon community refrains from activities that actively impact these goals in any negative way.
While ‘socially conscious’ may mean many things to many people– and this is wonderful– the SoCon Networking Community, including Members and Guests, are united in this definition centered on the UN SDGs.
The SoCon Community
Our vibrant group began in 2018 in Portland, Oregon as a business networking group for socially conscious professionals. The Portland group met monthly until March 2020. SoCon Networking events were also held in Chicago, Houston, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, with plans to bring SoCon to Denver, Austin, and other cities.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person networking events went on hold, and the fate of SoCon hung in the balance. In mid-2021, SoCon re-emerged as an inclusive community group for discussing issues related to conscientious living.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals remain at the forefront of defining SoCon.
