Maybe you’ve seen the term “Sustainable and Responsible Investing” (SRI) and thought, “Is this for real?” Is it complicated? Is it only for the super-rich? Can your really have an impact? Will investing in your values impact the performance of your investment strategy? The good news is you can be proactive in your investment decisions, and at least some of your investments can support values that matter to you. And the more people express an interest in SRI, the more it becomes a standard for supporting change. In this webinar, Emily Lee and Susan Baker tell us how we can be advocates—through our investments—for women’s issues, board diversity, and climate change. Learn about tools you can use; how to be sure your investments are not in conflict with your values; and how to be an engaged investor.
