The European Bahá’í Business Forum (EBBF)1 is celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary in 2015. This Bahá’í-inspired organization is a small network of individuals dedicated to promoting ethical behavior and other Bahá’í values in the workplace. Although relatively unknown in North America, it has had significant influence at the local, national, and international levels. This paper considers how EBBF has helped its members understand the broader conversations of society and contribute to the advancement of discourse in a business context. It offers an analysis of fields in which it has had an impact, and of capacities and methods that have been developed, and suggests ideas worth exploring further for those engaged in contributing to the discourses of society.

1 As the article explains later, the name of the organization has been changed to Ethical Business Building Future.
