The Clean Money Evolution
There is plenty of money to solve most global challenges. Our money has our name on it, and we must choose to do less harm and more good with it. We need a spiritual evolution to re-feminize, re-indigenize, and re-inclusivise money. This panel will help us learn about where our money is, what it is doing to other people and places, right now, and how to respond.
Rosa Lee Harden
The Rev. Canon Rosa Lee Harden is a self-described serial-entrepreneur. Her vocational life has included being publisher of weekly newspapers, trade journals, a business journal and CEO of a ‘Silicon Valley’ start-up. She was ordained as an Episcopal Priest in 2000 and served as Vicar of Holy Innocents Episcopal Church in San Francisco for ten years during which time its adult membership doubled and the number of children younger than 12 went from two to more than 50.
In 2008, she and her husband, Kevin Jones, launched the global SOCAP (Social Capital Markets) conference, described as ‘the conference at the intersection of money and meaning.’ In its 11th year, SOCAP18 brought more than 3,000 people from more than 60 countries to San Francisco to talk about how to accelerate the good economy. More recently they have launched GatherLab a conference/lab with the goal of transforming the economy for good. Her personal goal in this space is to help bring into consciousness how money impacts and guides life’s decisions – for both good and ill – and to guide conversations that help people uncover their own ‘money stories.’
Her passions include her grandchildren, the drum and bugle corps activity where she currently serves as president of the 19-time World Champion Blue Devils, and ballroom dance
