We are the RSA. The royal society for arts, manufactures and commerce. We’re committed to a future that works for everyone, a future where we all can participate in its creation. With over 250 years of heritage in making significant social impact, we bring together, our rigorous research, proven change process, influential ideas platforms and our global community of over 30,000 problem solvers united in a desire to deliver solutions for lasting change.
To achieve this, we ask everyone – our staff, our Fellowship, our collaborators, our partners and wider society – to commit to our values and world view, and strive to achieve genuine positive impact in our lives. This isn’t something we can achieve overnight. But we are asking you to join us all on this journey. The commitment you make now, is a commitment to be with us, to shape us, to challenge us, and to stimulate us all, to find better ways of thinking, acting and delivering change.
It represents the pact you sign when you join us. A pact that represents everything we do, every decision we make, and every action we take.
And it represents how we act. In a way that represents our values, with rigour and proven processes. A relentless spirit. Open minds, and an open door.
We bring to life our Commit to Impact brand idea through every organisational touchpoint, so we can ask everyone who interacts with us: will you?
We invite you to be part of this change. Join our community. Together, we’ll unite people and ideas to resolve the challenges of our time.
