Impact Investing for Foundation Staff and Asset Owners New To the Field

Mission Investors Exchange’s 16th Mission Investing Institute at the Ford Foundation Center for Social Justice in New York, NY, will feature 2 ½ days of member-led sessions bringing together approximately 40 staff members from foundations or other philanthropic asset owners across the country. This intensive training experience is designed to help philanthropy professionals gain exposure to approaches that can help them get started in impact investing or advance their practice — whether they are part of a well-established impact investing program or developing one from scratch. Through interactive exercises in small-group settings, participants will hear from their peers in philanthropy, build relationships with fellow philanthropic professionals, and learn from seasoned investors in the field.
 

What Will Participants Walk Away With?

  • A clear understanding of the impact investing landscape, including commonly used tools and terms
  • Strategies on how to manage and measure impact
  • Concrete examples of structuring, sourcing, diligence, and how organizations are incorporating diversity, equity, and inclusion goals into investments
  • New connections and networks to support the development of their impact investing programs
