WCEE Lunch & Learn Series

Invest with your Values – Create a Positive Impact

WCEE invites you to a panel discussion about different approaches to Socially Responsible Investing (SRI), and how your portfolio can reflect your personal values while creating both a competitive financial result and a positive impact on society and the environment. The impact focus can encompass many factors, such as environmental sustainability, fossil fuel free energy and reduced carbon footprint, promoting gender equality, or a combination of several different causes.

Panelists will discuss their personal journeys to investing with impact, and the opportunities they see going forward.
