Public Policy Wins to Benefit Communities: The Roles for Mission Investors in 2021

When it comes to making positive change, public policies codify shared agreements and accelerate priorities, potentially driving significant gains for communities. Join us on February 3rd at 3-4:30PM ET for a webinar that sheds light on the opportunities mission investors have to advance policies that leverage private capital for urgently needed public good.
  • Shena Ashley, Vice President, Nonprofits and Philanthropy, Urban Institute
  • Melanie Audette, Senior Vice President, Mission Investors Exchange
  • Lisa Mensah, President & CEO, Opportunity Finance Network
  • Fran Seegull, Executive Director, The U.S. Impact Investing Alliance
The webinar will kick off with an overview from Fran Seegull of The U.S. Impact Investing Alliance’s new publication, Private Capital, Public Good — which identifies recommendations for policymakers in Washington — followed by a fireside chat and Q&A with all three speakers, exploring the following questions and more:
  • In the new Congress and Presidential Administration how can we build not only the infrastructure needed for more just and equitable communities but also mend the fractures we face as a nation?
  • What new or strengthened public policies can reverse the hollowing out of Black, Latino, Indigenous, urban and rural communities that have for generations been excluded from the dividends of economic growth?
  • In the urgency for a just and equitable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, what roles can foundations play to increase capital flowing to and through community development financial institutions and minority depository institutions? ?

This webinar is part of a Public Policy Learning Series, presented in partnership with The U.S. Impact Investing Alliance, Opportunity Finance Network, Urban Institute, U.S. Economic Development Administration, and the Council on Foundations. Stay tuned for more events in the coming weeks.
