Women and Impact Investing

Place-based investing, investor’s circles and impact investing are changing the face of philanthropy. Come and hear how impact investing can be both a threat and an opportunity for development professionals.

We will explore impact investing – what it is and how people are fundraising with this new paradigm. Philanthropists are increasingly looking to create systemic change and using creative investing tools such as angel networks to drive that change. We will explore the topics of Investors Circle and women’s approach to mission alignment and other topics.
