In her new book, Judy Samuelson describes “the profound shifts in attitudes and mindsets that are redefining our notions of what constitutes business success.”

Held in partnership with Georgetown University’s Beeck Center for Social Impact + Innovation, our March 2021 Salon will feature the author in conversation with DC Co-Ambassador Nate Wong, FRSA as they unpack the motivations behind and implications of Judy’s new book The Six New Rules of Business: Creating Real Value in a Changing World. Myriad crises are converging to make these new rules even more salient to the business world today: the state of our climate; the effects of artificial intelligence on the workforce; the reckoning with economic exclusion, racism, and inequality; the shift from shareholder to stakeholder capitalism; and more. Join us for an interactive and hard-hitting conversation.

Our speakers will be:

  • Judy Samuelson is the founder and executive director of The Aspen Institute Business and Society Program, and is a vice president at the Aspen Institute. She is the author of The Six New Rules of Business: Creating Real Value in a Changing World. Among the many highlights of Judy’s tenure at Aspen, she produced the Aspen Principles of Long-Term Value Creation to challenge short-termism in business and capital markets. Her career spans working in the California State Legislature, banking in New York's garment center and directing the Ford Foundation's exploration of impact investing - the Office of Program-Related Investments. She is a Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Fellow and a director of the Financial Health Network.

  • Nate Wong, FRSA, is the chief strategy & social innovation officer at Georgetown University’s Beeck Center for Social Impact + Innovation. Prior to joining the Beeck Center, Nate helped launch and direct two social impact units on the vanguard of redefining business and societal value to drive social change: one at Deloitte Consulting/Monitor Deloitte and at Boston Consulting Group’s non-profit, the Centre for Public Impact in the US where he served as Deputy Director. In addition to his RSA Fellowship, Nate is a Fellow of the Centre for Public Impact, and is a member of the board of several non-profits including the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition and CharityVest.

RSA US Virtual Salons occur on the fourth Thursday of each month; they aim to create open dialogue and a space for RSA US Fellows to connect across geography over the issues of our times. Join a Salon to get to know other RSA US Fellows and our interests, passions, and perspectives. Salons are supported through the moderation of a volunteer to ensure that a diversity of voices are heard. We invite all Fellows to join this discussion to deepen the ways we can connect with each other across the country!
