CRGO Law recently announced that Managing Member Albert B. Maggio Jr., a Wellington resident for the past 11 years, has joined the Council for Inclusive Capitalism with the Vatican. The council is a global nonprofit organization that joins moral and market imperatives to build a more inclusive, sustainable and trusted economic system that addresses the needs of people and the planet.
“I am thrilled to welcome Albert to the council and look forward to working with his firm as it takes the necessary actions to ensure a better future for us all,” said Meredith Sumpter, CEO of the Council for Inclusive Capitalism. “Whether you run a small business or are the CEO of a global corporation, we all have a role to play to build more inclusive economies and societies.”
The council is committed to action. Upon joining, council members commit their organizations to measurable and meaningful acts to create equality of opportunity, equitable outcomes, and fairness across generations, and to those whose circumstances prevent them from full participation in the economy.
The council was launched in December with the belief that businesses have a responsibility and the capability means to create stronger, fairer and more dynamic economies and societies. Council membership is open to all companies and organizations who are willing to make measurable, public commitments toward more inclusive and sustainable business practices.
The council is guided by His Eminence Cardinal Peter Turkson, who leads the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development at the Vatican and is led by a core group of global CEOs and public leaders who convene annually. More information can be found at www.inclusivecapitalism.com.
