The world is very different since we gathered last September. Global markets will continue to be shaped by shifting political landscapes, at what feels distinctly like the beginning of a new era.
At SOCAP, we believe in cross-sector collaboration. We believe that diversity is a strength, that differing perspectives are valuable, and that the inclusion of broad voices is mandatory for meaningful dialogue. We know that market systems are dynamic and complex, and that sustained impact can only be built collectively over time.
In 2016, we launched the SOCAP 365 year-round event series. The intention is to convene the SOCAP community throughout the year in multiple locations. Our goal is to meet you where you are, dive deep locally, and build stronger regional alliances to support the continued growth of impact investing – both as a value-driven methodology and a strong community of practice.
SOCAP 365 Events in February and March
Here are immediate opportunities to join us at the first five SOCAP 365 events in 2017:
- February 10 – Welcome Party, Poverty Stoplight (Washington, D.C.)
- February 27 – Financing Broad-Based Ownership (Washington, D.C.)
- March 2 – Capital Shifts for a Regenerative Economy (Berkeley)
- March 8 – Ethical Fashion Meets Global Markets (New York City)
- March 28 – Investing in Cultural Shift (San Francisco)
Additional events will be announced on a rolling basis; update your location here to receive invitations throughout the year to events happening near you.
In these changing times, we must gather. We must stay connected, remain committed to the work at hand, and remember the power we have to build strong alliances and global movements together.
