Highlights from the 2019 Mission Investing Institute
Mission Investors Exchange’s 16th Mission Investing Institute took place on March 26-28 at the Ford Foundation Center for Social Justice in New York, NY. The Institute featured 2 ½ days of member-led sessions bringing together approximately 40 staff members from foundations or other philanthropic asset owners across the country.
This is a once in a year intensive training experience designed to help philanthropy professionals gain exposure to approaches that can help them get started in impact investing or advance their practice — whether they are part of a well-established impact investing program or developing one from scratch. Through interactive exercises in small-group settings, participants hear from their peers in philanthropy, build relationships with fellow philanthropic professionals, and learn from seasoned investors in the field.
