The events of the past year have shined a light on the way that philanthropy and impact investing is conducted. It comes as no surprise that decision-makers tend to be disproportionately white, male, and from backgrounds of privilege, and decisions tend to be made in a closed and opaque fashion. But there’s another story that’s unfolding – one where funders have chosen to cede decision-making power to people with lived experience of the problem at hand. And that story is told in an exceptional book titled Letting Go: How Philanthropists and Impact Investors Can Do More Good by Giving Up Control. And it’s a pleasure to have here with us its co-author, Meg Massey.

Impact investing has been around for nearly 15 years now, but how and where did that term get hatched? The answer would be at the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center back in 2007. And the woman at the founding, who has led and transformed two global institutions as the president of the University of Pennsylvania and the aforementioned Rockefeller Foundation is with us now. She is Dr. Judith Rodin, who has co-authored a wonderful new book on impact and sustainable investing and the revolution titled Making Money Moral: How a New Wave of Visionaries is Linking Purpose and Profit.
