April 11, Emmanuel Episcopal Parish, Orcas Island, 6:30-8 p.m.
Friends of the San Juans is excited to partner with Toby Cooper and Georgette Wong to bring information to the community about green investing – a movement that benefits humanity and the planet.
Toby, a sustainability advocate and career financial professional will trace rise of socially-responsible investing from an obscure religious practice to the influential $14 trillion entity it has become. He will show that “aligning your money with your values” can lead both to personal satisfaction and a demonstrable measure of social and environmental change, and will evaluate the potential impacts on investment returns
Georgette is a recognized trailblazer in impact investing. From 2007-2012 she curated the Take Action! Impact Investing Summit, which convened thought-leaders and pioneering asset owners representing over $4.5 trillion dollars. She has presented on impact investing before the US Senate, the US State Department, the UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investment, and others.
All are welcome for a stimulating dialogue on a topic fundamental to our times.
