The Wharton Social Impact Conference is back, and as usual, attendees can expect to learn about impact investing trends and best practices from those doing it in real time.
As told by Wharton Social Impact Initiative (WSII) communications head Allie Ilagan, the event “will demonstrate how various stakeholders are responding to client demand; how they’re using data to effectively make decisions; and what cutting-edge strategies are combining economic returns with positive social or environmental outcomes.”
Check out the panel topics:
- Mainstreaming impact investing — Hear how big names like Bank of America Merrill Lynch are getting in on the impact game.
- Creating place-based impact — Expect a community-centric discussion about economic development in urban areas.
- Impact investing strategies — Learn about using private equity, gender lens investing and more.
And surprise — just for us, WSII created the code “Generocity” for 10 percent off general admission tickets.
Heads up, there are also reception-only tickets for those just interested in the networking portion of the day. Happy learning!-30-
