A Conscious Conversation on Stakeholders: Investors
January 29, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Financial capital serves an indispensable role in free-enterprise capitalism. For free-enterprise capitalism to evolve successfully, financial stakeholders must become conscious and reconnect with their higher purpose. – Conscious Capitalism
In this special roundtable, we examine Conscious Capitalism through the eyes of investors. Providers of capital are evolving, taking a broader look at how the principles of conscious capitalism can help them carry out their fiduciary duties. Different investment strategies are growing in popularity:
* negative screening to exclude certain industries or companies
* environmental, social and governance (ESG) approaches to asset allocation, security selection or risk management
* socially responsible investing (SRI) as an investment strategy
* impact investing to generate social or environmental impact alongside financial return
In this conscious conversation, we’ll have intimate discussions with members of the investment community who can speak to trends in conscious investing. We’ve selected leaders for our panel who can speak to different places in the spectrum of investment strategies. Then we’ll shift into small groups to discuss the challenges faced by the attendees. Bring your questions and challenges around conscious investing to share with the group.
Speakers to be announced in early January.
About the Conscious Conversations series Our Conscious Conversations are designed to facilitate peer exchange about a specific aspect of Conscious Capitalism. Each event consists of a short panel discussion, followed by small group discussions to allow participants to share ideas, challenges and solutions. We leave plenty of time to make new connections with other conscious capitalists.
Who we are Our mission is to connect, educate and inspire leaders and workers to consciously build businesses that positively impact the world. Members of the Boston chapter of Conscious Capitalism are diverse individuals who recognize the power of capitalism to improve the human condition and create enduring value for all stakeholders. We come from organizations large and small, at different stages of our careers, from CEO to student. We’re bound by our common curiosity about these ideas and the desire to create change in organizations and society.
This event is brought to you with the special support of Impact Hub Boston.
