Community Voice in Impact Investing

When it comes to making change through impact investing, the community engagement process is crucial to the financial as well as social performance of your investments.
 
As part of their investment process, forward thinking investors are including people in communities most impacted and often in the position to maintain long-term positive impact.
 
Lisa Richter will moderate another lively conversation in this series to share how impact investing organizations serving rural communities are engaging residents and organizations as partners, including through:
  • leadership development
  • community surveys
  • partnerships with grassroots organizations and government
  • member-owned institutions, and
  • technology-driven communications
In this webinar, panelists discussed specific investment examples how these tools have enhanced traditional technical assistance and why the approaches must vary from one community to another, where diverse populations, unique local development needs and the cultures change over time.
