How do impact investors and policymakers use and rely on census data? And what are the consequences for impact investors if the census fails to include all our communities?Join Mission Investors Exchange on Tuesday, November 12, 2019 at 3 PM ET for a 90-minute webinar exploring why and how foundations and other impact investors are mobilizing to get out the count for the 2020 Census. This webinar will dive deep into these key areas:-Understanding how census data is used in impact investing, policy, and much more.-Understanding the risks of inaccurate data and why policy makers and others are so alarmed about the potential for an under-count in 2020. We’ll particularly focus on risks for vulnerable populations, including households with young children, mixed-status families, immigrants, refugees, Native communities on tribal lands, people in the rural south, and other under-counted groups.-How you can take action, including how philanthropy is using its resources to mobilize capital right now to fill funding gaps and support organizations on the ground reaching hard-to-count populations.
To achieve inclusive business growth and scale, companies not only need to have the right products, services and business model, but also the appropriate management practices. Base of the Pyramid (BoP) markets require the adaptation of traditional management practices or the development of new ones. The multinational corporations (MNCs) engaging in the BoP market are often faced with unfamiliar contexts, new kinds of customers and suppliers, thin and volatile operating margins, and long timeframes to scale and produce financial returns.
Based on the Business Call to Action’s recently launched report documenting the findings drawn from a decade of experience engaging with inclusive business globally, this live webinar will explore how innovative management practices tailored to the BoP market can provide competitive advantage, ensure a better understanding and responsiveness to stakeholders, and balance short-term stability with long-term viability. The panel of experts features companies who took part in the What Does It Take to Go Big report.
This event is part of the Inclusive Business Boost series funded by the UK Department for International Development.
Recent media coverage of Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) has criticized them for not moving enough money to end charities fast enough, as well as giving to hate groups and not aligning endowment investment capital with purpose. This webinar will explore what the best practice is or should be for DAFs to fulfill their promise of well over $100 billion (and fast-growing) in alignment and making positive impact with the society and planet they exist to serve. What would a robust set of principles that elevate DAF best practices look like across grantmaking, investing and otherwise? Is there an opportunity to lead the field toward these best practices, and what role could reasonable, effective regulation play if any?

Washington, DC / Virtual - 1 DayMonday
At the Center, we’ve put our own spin on the oft-cited maxim about the importance of partnership in shaping progress: If you want to go wide, go with government. If you want to go deep, go with NGOs and researchers. If you want to go fast, go with the private sector. But if you want to go far, go together.
On Monday, October 21, the Center and the Aspen Institute will co-host the inaugural Global Inclusive Growth Summit to spur new transformative partnerships. A one-day event, the Summit will bring together purpose-driven leaders, thinkers, change-makers and innovators to shine a spotlight on data-driven and commercially scalable solutions to advance sustainable and equitable growth around the world.
The line-up of speakers and moderators includes Madeleine Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State; Ajay Banga, president and CEO of Mastercard; Tina Brown, founder of Women in the World; Neville Crawley, CEO of Kiva; Arne Duncan, former U.S. Secretary of Education; Mark Green, administrator, USAID; Anne Finucane, vice chairman, Bank of America; Andrea Jung, CEO, Grameen America; Mitch Landrieu, former mayor of New Orleans; Stephanie Mehta, editor-in-chief of Fast Company; Dan Porterfield, president and CEO, Aspen Institute; Rajiv Shah, president, Rockefeller Foundation; Chetna Sinha, founder, Mann Deshi Bank and Foundation, among others.
Throughout the Summit, attendees, the Center and the Aspen Institute will announce major commitments and partnerships.
The event will be live-streamed on October 21 starting at 9 a.m. Eastern Time. We hope you’ll mark your calendar to watch from the Summit homepage and join the conversation at #GlobalIGS. We invite you to weigh in on the Summit discussions and tell us why inclusive growth is important to you and the most promising partnerships and solutions in your region or area of work.

The Inclusive Fintech 50 initiative, funded by MetLife Foundation and Visa, with support from Accion and IFC, aims to make early-stage fintechs more visible to investors and others who can help them scale and reach more underserved people. Launched earlier this year and implemented by MIX, the competition attracted eligible applications from 400 early-stage fintechs driving financial inclusion. In this webinar, the team behind the global initiative will share key insights generated from an analysis of the applicant data including (1) How funding is concentrated in several important ways, (2) why measuring inclusivity is highly contextual, (3) that innovation is not limited to technology, and (4) why greater alignment on definitions and KPIs will help improve assessments of inclusive fintech. The webinar can help investors, policy makers, and fintechs form a deeper understanding of the rapidly evolving space.
