Intentional Endowments Network has taken off -- growing in 18 months from an idea to an active community of learning and action made up of contributions from hundreds of participants.
We have hosted five major forums, and convened a Steering Committee of leaders from higher education, the investment industry, non-profits, and philanthropic organizations.
We have pulled together key reports and resources on financial performance, fiduciary duty, ESG integration, shareholder engagement, and more. We've also highlighted several examples of what campuses across the country are doing to more closely align their endowment investing practices with their institutional mission, values, and sustainability goals.
There is a sea change underway in terms of how endowments - and all institutional investors - think about the risks and opportunities that 21st century sustainability challenges present.
