How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

RSA-US supports the collaborative development of initiatives for the social good. Recent projects have focused on homelessness, green energy, sustainability, women in recovery, arts enrichment, networking for social entrepreneurs, and design for social innovation. We have established a challenge venture fund to further support social entrepreneurs and innovation; and introduced the Diebold scholarships which encourage professional development for young people.  Each of these initiatives has measurable impact: improved quality of life for women, fresh vegetables and free solar power for a community, arts education for many children and their families, attendance at conferences and events for emerging professionals, clean energy for third world entrepreneurs, network mapping for the homeless, and  developing 21st Century workskills by connecting education with industry.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"At the heart of the RSA's contemporary mission and public debates about
the future prospects for the human race is the question: 'Can we go on
like this?' Will the ideas and values which transformed our world in
the last two centuries be sufficient to find solutions to the
challenges we now face or do we need new ways of thinking?  The RSA
brings great ideas to global audiences, cuts
across traditional political battle lines, carries out cutting-edge 
research and undertakes practical innovation drawing on the talents and
commitment of its 27,000 strong Fellowshian undergraduate standing alongside a Fortune 500 CEO on equal footing, each learning from the other."
