Plenary 3 — Community Resilience: Investing in People and Infrastructure | MIE's 2022 National Conference

How can impact investing strengthen communities? How have communities have been resourceful and resilient in the face of unprecedented challenges?
This thought-provoking and inspirational plenary begins remarks by Baltimore Mayor Brandon M. Scott. We then turn to a fireside chat between Dr. Robert K. Ross, President and CEO of The California Endowment, and Nick Tilsen, President and CEO of NDN Collective, an Indigenous-led organization dedicated to building Indigenous power. We then hear TED Talk-style presentations from a diverse group of innovative investors and investees: Ashani Collins O'Mard, Senior Vice President, Strategic Housing Investments for the Atlanta Neighborhood Development Partnership, Inc.; Rev. Dr. Heber Brown, III, Founder of the Black Church Food Security Network; Tracy Palandjian, CEO and Co-founder of Social Finance; and Dr. Mohan Suntha, President and CEO of the University of Maryland Medical System.
