Impact Investing Virtual Meetup: Investor Advocacy

Wednesday, November 06, 2019, 12:30pm – 1:30pm EST

Join us for a one-hour, participatory video/conference call with other JFN members who are involved in impact investing. Virtual Meetups are not traditional webinars — they are interactive opportunities to learn and share with one another.

We’ll begin with a 30-minute briefing by Julie Hammerman & Rabbi Jacob Siegel of JLens. They’ll discuss investor advocacy, an increasingly influential strategy used by impact investors to change corporate behavior. Powerful economic entities, namely institutional investors and large companies, have become key levers for advocacy on a range of social and environmental concerns. Unlike other faith communities, the Jewish community has largely been absent from the investor advocacy arena. This has been a missed opportunity for pursuing positive change, and a critical gap in our community’s ability to respond to concerns ranging from the BDS movement, to antisemitism and religious intolerance.

For the second half hour, the floor will be open to all participants, who can ask questions of the presenters, share your own methods and approaches in impact investing, float new ideas, and get feedback from other participants.

Please note: This virtual meetup is for funders who are actively working on impact investing initiatives, and is not intended to be an introductory conversation.
