    Tackling Racial Bias and Marginalization Through Impact Investing

    In the USA, there have been a number of focused and specialist efforts to direct impact funds at marginalized communities where there are concentrations of people of color. These efforts are important and potentially significant because they come after decades of urban blight, discrimination and regeneration that led to displacement. In this webinar, we will discuss and learn about:

      • Product development to directly channel finance to social justice and anti-racism not for profits and projects that focus on empowerment of people of color
      • Specialist funds launched by large institutional investors to reinvigorate marginalized communities
      • Social Venture funds deploying capital to founders who would otherwise have limited access to funds
      • Efforts to improve racial diversity in the impact investment community by promoting and strengthening LPs, fund managers and other decision makers

    This webinar is the second in a series of three programs focused on diversity, inclusion and accountability in impact investment designed in collaboration with Gillian Marcelle of Resilience Capital Ventures LLC. For more information on the series, visit this link.
