Best Introductory Content

I wrote a series of articles and a glossary for companies and advisors who are learning about the impact investing, ESG, and SRI space. ESG vs. SRI and What is Impact Investing were top reads from that group. 


Most Popular Impact Interview 
I love sharing impact success stories and interviewed five impact investing leaders this year. The most clicked on interview is a great story from Trillium of winning equal opportunity employment protection for LGBTQ employees through shareholder engagement success.


Most Controversial in the Impact Community
You all flooded my inbox with replies to this recent post about indexing and impact. The responses ranged from celebratory to the opposite, as well as ideas and suggestions. Next year I'll dive deeper and share some of the wide ranging perspectives on this topic.


Taking a Risk and Going Off Script
Last month I went off script from my usual impact investing talk, to address the lack of racial diversity in the impact investing space. To my surprise the talk was a resounding success, including a standing ovation. You can see a short clip at the top of this page.

Women and Impact
I moderated a panel of phenomenal experts at the Investment News Women Advisor Summit (WAS). It was such a success and so enjoyable that I've joined the WAS advisory board to help bring excellent Impact and ESG discussion to all 6 cities in 2019

Most Talked About Podcast
On the 2050 Trailblazers podcast, I was candid and honest about a wide range of topics about the intersection of race and financial services.  That podcast conversation has sparked many other conversations both online and offline and I'm grateful to have been a guest on one of my favorite shows.
