Where to find us this Autumn

As values-based investors, field building to help the responsible investing and impact industry grow is a core part of what we do. This is where to find us this Autumn.

12 October – Global Impact Investing Network Forum 2022, The Hague

Many investors use IMM to figure out if they are driving towards systemic change. As a result, the industry is grappling with how and where current IMM efforts are missing the mark. This session will focus on what needs to happen next to shift IMM practices to really solving problems at a systems level. Panelists will discuss the recently launched IRIS+ Racial Equity track and the driving need for investor practices to start to shift the system on DEI. Panelists will also speak to where current IMM tools and standards fit into the larger systems change conversation.

The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) Forum is the largest in-person gathering of impact investors in the world. 

Dimple Sahni, Managing Director of Impact Funds Portfolios, will participate in the panel discussion on systems change.
