Update Regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) on March 16, MIE made the decision to take the Conference online for the safety of our community. Thank you for your patience as we pivot to go virtual in realtime. Registration officially closes on May 9 at 12 PM EST. Also, look out for MIE emails, check spam folders, and make sure to take action on emails immediately so that we can troubleshoot ahead of time! Please email [email protected] or call 646-484-9910 if you have trouble accessing the Conference.
In light of updated guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the recently declared state of emergency, and out of concern for the health and safety of our community, MIE will no longer be holding a live event in Atlanta. Instead, we're taking the MIE 2020 National Conference online!
We are committed to creating a virtual Conference that will serve as a space to engage at a time when it is more important and urgent than ever to meet, collaborate, and build community in new ways. In this spirit, MIE is embracing creativity while centering our thoughts on the individuals and communities that are experiencing harm around the world, including those directly affected by illness and healthcare workers who place themselves at risk every day. We are also concerned about reports that certain racial groups and nationalities are being targeted in connection to the virus. As a values-oriented organization, we continue to lead with empathy and respect, and have provided resources below that support your health and offer ideas on how philanthropy can support others.
Please visit our Conference site for updated pricing and policies. We also urge you to consider the financial implications to MIE as we face these unprecedented circumstances. MIE has significantly reduced ticket prices to provide a more inclusive experience and are appreciative of donations as we rapidly adapt to virtual programming. We are deeply grateful to the MIE community, as well as the Conference speakers, sponsors, vendors, and partners for their flexibility and support. If you have any questions, please contact Rebecca Price at 617-500-2410 or [email protected].
On Thursday, March 19, Mission Investors Exchange and over three dozen collaborators engaged in a Twitter chat aimed at surfacing philanthropic solutions around the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. This chat focused on creating an open exchange to bring in new voices and foster a discussion around:
What should investors do in the short term (now-6 months) to respond quickly to COVID-19?
What should investors do in the medium term (6-24 months), given the uncertainty both related to the virus and our economy as it responds?
What should investors do in the long term (2-10 years) to support resilience and adaptability in times of unforeseen challenges?
