How Women Can Unlock the Power of Impact Investing
Andrea Pactor, Women's Philanthropy Institute
Men and women approach impact investing differently. Women are well-positioned to lead this burgeoning field, but there is a gap between their interests and actions. How do we get more women to engage with impact investing and embrace a leadership role? What challenges should be addressed and how should the conversation change? Drawing on new research from the Women's Philanthropy Institute, work being done by the Women Leading the Way in Impact Investing initiative, and real-world experiences of female impact investors, this panel will explore the unique lens women bring to impact investing and their potential to accelerate the field.
