Open Mic: Developing Impact Measures to Advance Racial Justice
Join us for an Open Mic conversation on Tuesday, June 29, 2021 at 3PM ET that will explore new tools devoted to helping impact investors measure their racial equity impact.
In response to the impact investing community’s calls for more specific instruments to measure impact in racial equity, Mission Investors Exchange has curated an Impact Measurement Open Mic in tandem with the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN), PolicyLink, and CapEq. During this conversation, you will learn about the newly developed Racial Equity theme in IRIS+’s Navigating Impact Project — a free tool to help impact investors measure, manage, and optimize their impact.
Participants can expect a deep dive into the goals and strategies that drive the impact measurement of racial equity, how to transition from intentionality to real impact, and understanding what impact measurement looks like for investors seeking to advance racial equity. Additionally, this Open Mic will examine the three strategic goals that have driven their application of IRIS+’s Racial Equity theme: power, risk, and justice.

Open Mics are lightly structured, webcam-enabled calls for MIE members to come together and discuss ideas and opportunities to create impact. Intended to be flexible, Open Mics embody the goal of mobilizing with urgency, employing a simple concept:
- What ideas, projects, or resources exist within the MIE community — and how can we help each other respond to urgent crises?
- How can we work quickly to bring together a variety of voices, investment opportunities, and best practices in an action-oriented conversation?
Open Mics are open to MIE members and invited guests. Members, log in for a link to register. If you are not an MIE member and would like to attend, or have challenges accessing registration information, please contact Zineb Touzani at [email protected].
