Twice a year Friends who are in business – and their friends who are interested in Quakers – gather for dinner and a lecture sponsored by Philadelphia Yearly Meeting. The talk is often by a Friend who shares his or her experience of Quakerism and business and their intersection. Sometimes the speaker is a person who is not a Friend but has been impacted by our faith. In November 2017 John Bogle, the founder and chief executive of The Vanguard Group, addressed Friends in Business at Arch Street Meeting House. In his talk he shared that Quaker values inspired his work and his life. John Bogle died this week and QuakerSpeak shared a short video of these remarks.
