“Frustrated with the Political Process? Try Socially Responsible Investing with Shareholder Activism.”
Presenter: Christopher Cox, Associate Director, Seventh Generation Interfaith-Coalition for Responsible Investment.
Democratic engagement is more important than ever, but what can we do in this era of political division, Congressional gridlock, and ever-changing regulations from one administration to the next? Have you considered socially responsible investing? For five decades, groups of socially conscious investors have worked for and won corporate-level change. At the corporate level, decisions are made every day that affect climate change, sustainability, economic justice, worker/consumer safety and public health. Seventh Generation Interfaith Coalition for Responsible Investment (SGI) is a coalition of faith and values-driven institutional investors who view the management of their investments as a powerful catalyst for social change.
Host: Terry Wiggins.
