Social Impact and Investing | November 2, 2017
The world of private capital is founded on a specific and often individualized notion of prosperity. But as 21st-century communities face increasingly interconnected challenges, investment firms are broadening their strategies to consider the triple bottom line, or their potential impact on economic, environmental, and societal well-being. As speakers William Shutkin, Joshua Pollard, and Rich Overmoyer will discuss, solutions to the world’s most intractable issues lie in unusual partnerships, leveraging the specific strengths of businesses, nonprofits, and governmental institutions. Jaison Morgan, creator of the MacArthur Foundation’s 100 & Change competition, will follow with an in-depth examination of creative incentives to catalyze social change.
