About this event

As part of the Philanthropy Northwest Impact Investment Collaborative, RBC Global Asset Management and Philanthropy Northwest invite you to a discussion about the "why" and "how" of investing liquid assets with a racial equity focus.

Topics to be discussed:

  • BIPOC leaders discuss their personal experiences working within the financial sector with a focus on their efforts to reduce systemic challenges and inequalities.
  • Pros and cons of supplying bank deposits and other targeted strategies to support the development of BIPOC communities.
  • The Micron Story - Align your company's fixed income holdings with racial equity.

Who Should Attend

This session is for foundations seeking endowment practices that can further racial equity. This will be of particular interest to foundation executives, investment staff, investment committees and board members, but all are welcome to attend and ask questions about these emerging ideas.
