NEW YORK — CLC Advisors today announced that CEO Cindy Chin has been awarded as a Fellow of The Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA).
The RSA believes in a world where everyone is able to participate in creating a better future, by uniting people and ideas to resolve the challenges of our time by bringing together a global community of proactive problem solvers, supported by Fellows and partners.
Through ideas, research and a 30,000 strong Fellowship it is a global community of proactive problem solvers, sharing powerful ideas, carrying out cutting-edge research and building networks and opportunities for people to collaborate, influence and demonstrate practical solutions to realize change.
The RSA has been at the forefront of social change for over 260 years. Today their work focuses on supporting innovation in three major areas: creative learning and development, public services and communities, and economy, enterprise and manufacturing.
“There is a renewed movement of late across the world where futurists are exploring and discovering what our world needs. In dynamic, turbulent and unstable times of constant change, a nexus of energy and innovation brought on by technology that has been created the past 20 years. There is a greater need for deeper conversations and dialogue on what the ramifications of what societal issues have been brought about such as income inequality, climate change, sustainability, healthcare and what future societies will look like lightyears in the future. I’m deeply appreciative for this incredible honor to join the RSA amongst notable peers and friends and look forward to engaging in deeper discussions, ideas, and knowledge sharing.”– Cindy Chin, CEO CLC Advisors
The RSA, in its rich history, has had notable members that include Stephen Hawking, Marie Curie, Adam Smith, Benjamin Franklin, Charles Dickens, Karl Marx, Sir Richard Attenborough, Tim Berners-Lee, and Dame Judi Dench.
