Centering Community Perspective and Narratives: An Approach to Inclusive Capital and Long-term DEI

Olabayo Allen-Taylor July 6, 2022

Only 1.4% of AUM in the U.S. is managed by diverse owned firms and less than 3% of those funds are invested into Black, Latinx or female entrepreneurs. Impact Experience and Illumen Capital have partnered to shift this reality and will share what we’ve seen work on the ground in communities across the U.S. to reduce bias and spark capital investment benefiting communities of color. 

Join this interactive workshop to explore our place-based approach and how we ground our DEI learning in history and truth telling from the communities that have often been underestimated and overlooked.
