The second in our series of online seminars will take place on Saturday 11 April, and will explore Lessons for Leadership in a Crisis. Our alumni are relishing the opportunity to stay connected an engaged, and we are busy planning several more seminars to help them do so in the coming months.
While we normally convene in person, we’re finding that these online seminars evoke some of the magic that happens when we bring a diverse range of people together.
Ruth Girardet will be leading this leadership discussion, prompting us to examine our values and decisions as leaders during this time of global crisis. The seminar will be based on a short text, which acts as a common starting point for participants to reflect on the things that matter to our society today.
Ruth has been moderating Aspen Institute seminars since 2013. She has over twenty years of professional experience in corporate responsibility and corporate ethics, and extensive knowledge of how the corporate and charity sectors can work together to address issues of social justice. Ruth holds degrees in Politics and Economics from the University of Oxford, in Social Sciences from Humboldt University in Berlin, and in Applied Ethics from the University of Leeds.
Ruth has been Group Corporate Responsibility Director at Tesco Plc, and CEO of the social justice charity Just for Kids Law from 2016 to 2018. She is currently a member of the Council for the Open University, and is training as an Executive Coach with the Tavistock Clinic.
