    Webinar: A Live Conversation with Sara Olsen: Stakeholders Voice and Impact Management Project

    Everything we do impacts people and the planet. Impact management is the ongoing practice of measuring those impacts to reduce the negative and increase the positive.

    The Impact Management Project (IMP) is a forum for building global consensus on how to measure, report, compare, and improve impact performance. IMP looks at five elements. WHAT, WHO, HOW MUCH, CONTRIBUTION, and RISK

    Stakeholder’s voice gives us information about “WHO” do enterprises affect? How underserved are they in relation to the outcomes delivered by enterprises? To address these questions, we analyze the impact data categories under the ‘Who’ dimension.

    How to align stakeholder’s Voice with Impact Management Project?

    Join us for a live discussion with Sara Olsen, SVT group and Unmesh Sheth, Founder/CEO Sopact

    Financial Inclusion Week 2019

    As some organizations pursue financial inclusion as their ultimate goal, others are driving toward financial health or the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Meanwhile, financial institutions and fintechs are aiming to profitably serve low-income markets.

    In the face of these trends, we can’t help but ask: What is financial inclusion for?

    Financial Inclusion: For What? What For? is a call to action for our community to reexamine our goals and renew efforts to achieve them. During Financial Inclusion Week this year, October 21-25, 2019, we invite you to convene around this question to reexamine, redefine, and align our goals.

    Now in its 5th year, Financial Inclusion Week is an opportunity to strengthen the diverse community of players involved in building a more inclusive financial ecosystem.

    The objectives of Financial Inclusion Week are:

    • To bring the entire financial inclusion community together to explore issues of financial inclusion beyond access
    • To create leadership opportunities among diverse stakeholders
    • To create dialogue and community
    • To foster partnership and coordination within the financial industry
