S3E7: Judy Samuelson, The Aspen Institute

Vice President, The Aspen Institute
Apr 6, 2021

The Aspen Institute has earned a reputation for gathering diverse, nonpartisan thought leaders, creatives, scholars, and members of the public to address some of the world’s most complex problems. But the goal of these convenings is to have an impact beyond the conference room. They are designed to provoke, further, and improve actions taken in the real world.

You can state your purpose, but it’s revealed by the actions you take, the decisions you make, the way that you are.

Joining us this Global Volunteer Month is Judy Samuelson, Vice President at The Aspen Institute and Executive Director of its Business and Society Program. A leading voice on the alignment of business and purpose, Judy has published influential works on companies’ duty to society and how they can create true, sustainable social change. She and host Danielle Holly discuss the state of CSR and its future post-pandemic, CEO pay and income inequity, employees as a force for good, and why trust is crucial to a company’s success.

Judy also shares highlights from her new book, “The Six New Rules of Business: Creating Real Value in a Changing World,” which explores how major shifts in expectations for the private sector are prompting companies to reevaluate their definitions of success and transform the way they operate.
