news > Impact Investing with a Gender Lens

November 2, 2015

Capital Sisters co-hosted this first of its kind educational event which brought the national leaders of the Gender Lens Investing movement together in Denver, Colorado.

Over the last two decades, Socially Responsible Investing has experienced an extraordinary shift from a relatively small niche market to a mainstream investment strategy that continues to gain traction. However, SRI investing “with a gender lens” has taken hold with a much more limited number of investment opportunities.

This one day event brought together the true pioneers of the movement, for concrete conversation about how we can align our investment capital with our values to advance women – in the areas of shareholder advocacy, research, social enterprise, global women’s empowerment, corporate social responsibility, web based initiatives, and our own investment portfolios.
