Should we get political?
Melonie Tharpe, Center for Civic Innovation
In this era of extremist politics, what is our role? Impact investors, benefit corporations and the myriad of nonprofits that surround them represent a growing voice in the US and beyond, but until now that voice has been more in the boardroom and less at the ballot box. In the age of Trump, Brexit and more, the role of impact based businesses and investments could be critical. Join us for a deep discussion on what the moral obligations of our growing sector are in the political arena and how we might activate ourselves!
