Why Women, Why Now
Women’s leadership drives commerce, politics, activism and culture. But when it comes to our finances—taking full ownership of our investment choices, bringing our values to the fore of financial decision-making—we still have a ways to go. Men still make the majority of household investment decisions, and while women are largely interested in impact investing, only a small percentage are actually doing it.
How It Works
There are myriad ways to practice impact investing, no matter whether you have $25 or $25 million. The capital you use can come from multiple sources: it can be personal (perhaps from your own investments, your retirement fund, or a donor-advised fund) or institutional (perhaps you are on the board of an organization with an endowment, or part of a family foundation).
