Investing in Racial Equity: Digital Conversation Series

Impact investing has become a rapidly growing movement over the past several years.  At the same time, racial inequity is inextricably connected to nearly every social challenge that impact investing seeks to address - i.e. quality healthcare, affordable housing, access to a better education, and access to financial capital. Building racial equity is crucial for the United State’s future. How is impact investing making a difference?  What challenges exist and what are successful impact investing models that advance racial equity? How can you make a difference and play a role as a young graduate who is interested in entering this field?  Through the “Investing in Racial Equity: Digital Conversation Series”, you will have the opportunity to connect and engage with leaders in impact investing to begin exploring some of these questions. To receive the most updated information and details for joining these conversations, please click on RSVP.

Our first conversation in this series took place on November 18th with Net Impact’s CEO, Peter Lupoff, and Randy Strickland of Cornerstone Capital Group. It was a dynamic conversation that introduced the historical context of racial inequity in the U.S. and then went on to engage our callers around key questions that began to unpeel the layers of this complex issue. 

Subsequent conversations in this series are scheduled for January - March 2020. Each conversation will feature a different leader in the field with whom you will have the opportunity to engage in conversation about their experiential perspective in the field of impact investing and racial equity.
