Convergence XVII: Financing the Reduction of Gender-based Violence
Join Criterion for their signature convening, Convergence, taking place August 31 - September 2, 2020 in Simsbury, Connecticut. This unique gathering of catalytic change-makers will bring together leaders and pioneers from philanthropy, finance, government, and the social sector to move forward specific and tangible ideas to leverage the power of finance to address gender-based violence.
There are no keynotes, no speakers, no workshops. Just extraordinary conversations among folks actively engaged in creating a better world. What happens each year is transformational: a diverse and talented set of people spends three days in deep conversations, getting to insights and innovations, finding ways to collaborate, connecting dots, and clarifying our path forward.
This year participants will delve into insights and ideas for using finance to address gender-based violence, looking at growing demand among asset holders, designing products and services that address the issue, and building the field.
