    Webinar: The Science of Organizational Purpose Activation

    In 2014, Aaron Hurst published “The Purpose Economy”, where he predicted that purpose was the next major economic era. The tipping point for this new economy came last year, as the Business Roundtable announcement to collectively redefine the purpose of a company reverberated across industries. Having a company purpose is quickly becoming table stakes, but having a purpose written in carefully composed sentences on a website is one thing–having your employees actively understanding, embracing and living it out is another. So the question now is how do organizations effectively activate their corporate purpose?

    Join Aaron Hurst (co-founder and CEO of Imperative, founder of Taproot Foundation) and Gavin Cepelak (Senior Vice President of Global Pro Bono at PYXERA Global) as they discuss what science tells us about activating organizational purpose and how companies can best engage their employees around it.

    Webinar: Measuring Impact in Opportunity Zones

    This webinar delves into the controversial topic of how impact and its measurement are showing up in the landscape of Opportunity Zones. Media reporting has created a narrative that investments will primarily benefit wealthy investors, a narrative that is difficult to rebut given the lack of regulation to promote transparency and accountability. In this environment, champions of the potential for Opportunity Zones have sought to push forward tools and resources that will increase the flow of capital to under-resourced communities and support community-defined solutions. But with regulations only finalized at the end of 2019, there’s limited data to support a more complete narrative of what’s occurring inside Opportunity Zones or how it’s affecting residents and workers.

But with regulations only finalized at the end of 2019, there’s limited data to support a more complete narrative of what’s occurring inside Opportunity Zones or how it’s affecting residents and workers.

    This live webinar and audience Q&A will cover:

    •       a high-level regulatory and legislative overview with an impact reporting lens; an
    •       introduction to the Opportunity Zone Reporting Framework
    •       concrete examples of how the framework is operationalized among fund managers, developers, and communities
    •       the potential for a shared framework to understand impact and longer term outcomes of Opportunity Zones.

    Webinar panelists include Fran Seegull, who directs the U.S. Impact Investing Alliance, an impact investing field building organization, Jennifer Collins of Georgetown University’s Beeck Center for Social Impact + Innovation, and Adrian Franco of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Their organizations partnered together with multi-stakeholder engagement to develop the Opportunity Zones Reporting Framework— a shared approach to measuring and managing for impact in Opportunity Zones.  Jane Reisman, a social impact advisor engaged with field building and practice of impact measurement and management, will serve as moderator.
