Stacy Neal

Director of Programs

Stacy comes to FSG with a decade of experience in nonprofit management, grants administration, and project management. Her professional experience has been spent largely at organizations bridging the private, public, and NGO sectors across key international markets. As director of programs for the Shared Value Initiative (SVI), a multi-stakeholder effort that aims to drive adoption and improve implementation of shared value strategies amongst leading companies, civil society, and government organizations, Stacy works with SVI and FSG team members, as well as external networks, to shape and execute SVI programming and content. She is the author of Investing in Innovation: Verizon’s Approach to Incubating Shared Value and is the primary architect of the Initiative’s annual Shared Value Leadership Summit.

Before FSG

Prior to her role with the Shared Value Initiative, Stacy was Associate Director of the Center for Emerging Market Enterprises at The Fletcher School, Tufts University, where she oversaw all research projects, fellowship and research assistant programs, executive education development, major events, and grant-funded initiatives—including the Fletcher School Leadership Program for Financial Inclusion, which trains senior-level central bank and finance ministry regulators from frontier markets in effective advocacy for inclusive growth. Stacy also previously led external relations at Fletcher’s Jebsen Center for Counter-Terrorism Studies, managed business development activities at a boutique, China-focused consulting firm, and worked in communications and events planning at global microfinance network ACCION International.

On working at FSG

“FSG is the dream combination for a pragmatist who truly believes in social change: a mission-driven professional organization that embraces multi-sector collaboration and system change to create lasting impact. The Shared Value Initiative embraces this approach by mobilizing organizations and practitioners who understand that solving social issues can be a core driver of value for business and society. I’m incredibly honored to be part of the core Shared Value Initiative team since its launch, and look forward to seeing shared value become an important—even necessary—component of corporate strategy.”
