|The Membership program provides a platform for like-minded organizations to deepen their engagement with the impact investing industry. The membership aims to serve two functions: (1) It assembles and maintains a community of actors (i.e., the Membership body) that contributes resources (both financial and non-financial) to the realization of the GIIN strategy; and (2) It delivers an advocacy function through enabling collaboration within and amongst the membership around targeted efforts to raise the professionalism of the industry as a whole and to enable individual members to apply best practices. The GIIN Member Engagement Team runs a stream of programming each year designed to support members in networking, peer learning, and collaboration.
Within the Membership, the Investors’ Council (IC) is an invitation-only leadership group for active, large-scale impact investors.
