Using Finance as a Tool to Address LGBTIQ Issues – London, UK
Join us on November 20 and 21 in London for a workshop to identify the ways that finance can be used to increase investment in issues facing Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, and Queer (LGBTIQ) individuals and communities. We are looking to work with key gender, LGBTIQ, and financial actors to explore the burgeoning field of gender-lens investing (GLI) and how it can expand beyond a gender binary and be made more inclusive to LGBTIQ issues. We will explore questions such as: what are the investment opportunities posed by a more inclusive GLI field? Where can finance be a leverage point to address LGBTIQ issues? What is the business case for expanding the practice of gender lens investing and what are the risks of not doing so? Click here for more details and to register.
