    Responsible Investment Forum: New York Virtual Experience 2021

    The Responsible Investment Forum returns for its fifth year as a virtual event to bring together the most sophisticated LPs, GPs and associations to discuss why, when, and how your firm should be implementing an effective ESG strategy.

    ESG issues are at the heart of all PEI’s editorial coverage, with their reporters consistently following and scrutinizing the ways in which managers in the US are adopting responsible investment practices and what LPs are looking for as they consider investing in private equity. PEI, partnering with the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), continues to prove itself as a thought-leader in this area, and is at the forefront of covering the growth of ESG in North American private equity.

    Discussion topics:

    • Bridging the LP-GP divide on ESG
    • ESG reporting and metrics for success
    • Focusing on diversity at the fund level and portfolio level
    • Placing climate risk at the top of your agenda
    • Human capital as a driving force for value
    • ESG and the American Frontier
    • The ESG and impact investing dynamic
    • Engaging the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a strategic assessment tool
    • Value creation with ESG
    • LP expectations and focus in ESG due diligence

    Learn How to Use Plug-Ins: Customize Your Data Collection Tool to Better Adapt to Changing Needs

    As feature-rich as a data collection tool might be, there still might be times that you want to implement functionality, or visuals that are not supported. For this reason, SurveyCTO introduced field plug-ins, which allow you to heavily customize the appearance and purpose of fields. Field plug-ins are now even easier to get started with, for beginners and experienced developers alike, thanks to the new field plug-in testing interface. Join us on March 3, 2021 at 2 PM UTC / 9 AM EDT for their next webinar installment where you’ll learn to get started with field plug-in development!

    In this webinar, you’ll learn:

    – What field plug-ins are.
    – What field plug-ins can do.
    – The components of a field plug-in.
    – How to get started with customizing baseline field plug-in templates.
    – How to preview and test field plug-ins using the new testing interface.
    – Where to find helpful resources to learn more.

    Maternity Matters: Leveraging Digital Solutions at Scale to Deliver Quality Maternal Health Care Within UHC

    Over the past 18 months, MSD for Mothers and Devex have engaged in a partnership — Maternity Matters: Funding the future — to explore how donor funding is leveraging the private sector to meet needs related to reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health, or RMNCAH, and how that collaboration can help bridge the $33 billion annual financing gap in providing associated services, which could prevent the deaths of an estimated 24 million to 38 million women, children, and adolescents by 2030.

    One area of investment that stakeholders have identified as key for bridging the RMNCAH gap is data and digital technology, which has further been brought to the fore by the challenge of meeting the needs of women, children, and adolescents as the COVID-19 pandemic continues across the globe. Many donors have shared examples of digital investments that have sought to address these challenges and shown demonstrable impact but often failed to scale or be adopted as best practices.

    On March 3, Devex, in partnership with MSD for Mothers and the Bay Area Global Health Alliance, will convene a virtual roundtable on identifying the current barriers to accelerating the implementation of digital innovations for maternal health in low- and middle-income countries, as well as potential solutions for better efficiency in collaboration within the space.

    As an ecosystem event of Prescription for Progress, the roundtable will bring together key stakeholders, including global multilateral agencies, technology companies, and governments, to discuss some of these barriers. Together, they’ll explore the role of governments in creating enabling environments but also ensuring projects achieve the scale needed to reach underserved mothers.

    Time: 11 AM ET | 5 PM CET
