A Community-Centered Model for More Effective Investing

Too often well-intentioned impact investments and grant capital fall short in lifting underinvested communities. To better reach significant social returns, we need to center local leaders and residents throughout the investment process - a shift that requires investors to relinquish power and acknowledge race. We'll hold an interactive discussion around the GreenLight Fund model for shifting power in Detroit and demonstrate how, by flattening investment decision making, we can achieve more equitable and successful community outcomes.
