Anita Roddick

For the next couple of months, or some undetermined period, we will have, as you can see at the top of the right column on this screen-page, a small memorial to Anita Roddick. She challenged all of us to consider our business, of 1 or 1,0001 employees, a force for positive, broad-based social change, while also contributing to traditional capitalist growth through investable profits and job creation. The right thing is also the profitable thing—a message and method to which I, as well, have devoted my career.

(The memorial also links to this excellent article in the Telegraph, which reports on an interview recorded shortly before she died.)
