Democratizing Impact: An Invitation for All to Workshop Their Impact (Investing) Strategy

Erin Duddy July 4, 2022

Impact investing has been siloed as a mechanism only reserved for people with well above-average wealth. We’ve learned that additional forms of non-financial capital are needed for outsized impact. In CSP’s impact investing training programs we go through a series of exercises that support wealth holders in defining how they are best placed to impact global challenges. Supported by Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisor’s Impact Investing Handbook, we bring our training experience to offer a session open to investors and non-investors, so that everyone can workshop how they can use all forms of financial and non-financial capital to influence change.

  • Accountability

  • Advance Democracy
