Liz Mohn is awarded the medal of honour of the Real Academia de Ciencias Económicas y Financieras (RACEF) during the opening session of the academic year

The President of the Bertelsmann group and foundation, Liz Mohn, appealed for a new business culture based on the social undertaking for overcoming the crisis and for facing the success of globalisation. “Our slogan – explained Mohn – is that property means responsibility. Many businessmen, on a daily basis have shown how management should be linked to social undertaking and we should be inspired by them”. Mohn recalled that juvenile unemployment in Spain has reached the figure of 25% “and it is here that we should concentrate all our efforts”. The President of Bertelsmann urged businessmen to make an active undertaking in the resolution of the problems of their surroundings and, at the same time, make a serious effort in offering their employees “security, continuity and values”. “In order to change business cultures – she added – time is required, but it is a necessary task”.
