Join Nation Books author Morgan Simon on Wednesdsay, October 4 at The New School, in partnership with Transform Finance, to celebrate the launch of her new book, Real Impact: The New Economics of Social Change, in bookstores October 3rd. Maya Wiley, Senior Vice President of Social Justice at The New School and former counsel to Mayor de Blasio will introduce Simon.
Impact investment is the trillion-dollar trend most people have never heard of — the support of social and environmental projects with a financial return. It has become a hot topic amongst people who care about social change, and is growing exponentially: in the next decade, it is poised to eclipse traditional charitable aid by a factor of ten to one. Yet for all the excitement, there is work to do to ensure it actually realizes its potential. Will impact investment empower millions of people worldwide, or will it just replicate the same failures of both charity and finance?
Refeshments will be served. For more information or to RSVP click here.
