Open Mic #9: Advancing Racial Justice Through Impact Investing: Foundations & CDFIs
On July 15, we will welcome portfolio manager James C. Wahls of the Annie E. Casey Foundation and George Ashton of LICS, who will discuss approaches to investing in communities of color, particularly using Community Development Financial Institutions. Come join us not only to learn more specifically the nuts and bolts of how impact investing happens, but how you can make it happen for and with the people and communities you care about.
Open Mics are lightly structured 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 eachother 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?
MIE members, log in to access dial-in information and a self RSVP sheet.
