And this evening, you’ll be going to One Battery Park Plaza and to the headquarters of The GIIN, the Global Impact Investing Network. We’ll begin their chief executive officer, Amit Bouri, and then we will hear from other members of the team on why it’s such a special place to work.
It was just over 10 years ago at the Bellagio in Italy that the Rockefeller Foundation and others first coined the term “impact investing” to describe a practice that was showing up around the world in different ways. So where has that movement been over the past decade? And where might it be going from here? Well, we have just the right person for you this evening to give us that story. He is Amit Bouri, the Co-founder and CEO of the Global Impact Investing Network or GIIN.
