Panel Discussion:  

Impact Investing VS Impact Inclusion

Join us for a basic review of Impact Investing, including terminology, and how foundations are incorporating the shift to Impact Inclusion.


Sustainable Investing has surged to over $8.7 trillion. An increasing number of fund managers are now overlaying their investment strategies with environmental, social and governance (ESG) analysis. Asset management firms are finding ways to cater to all kinds of Impact Investing demands and innovation continues in the global capital markets to provide new sustainable investment products.


We will discuss answers to lingering misconceptions about what Sustainable Investing is and why as professionals you should be paying attention to the Impact Investing space.

Carolyn L. Stiles:

Influence of Women on Philanthropy

In examining motivations and priorities for giving, we should be aware of how factors such as age and gender can shape perceptions and behaviors over time.  Two segments in particular – Millennials and Women – are becoming tangible proof points on why philanthropy and impact investing are so closely linked.  The evolving needs of different generations are being shaped by the movement toward a holistic, goals-based approach to wealth management.  In this session, we will look at what the numbers say about strategic philanthropy and how philanthropic planning and impact investing are driving the modernization of giving.


Carolyn L. Stiles is a Principal of State Street Global Advisors and a Business Development Officer in the firm's Charitable Asset Management Group (CAM). Prior to this role, Carolyn was a Senior Relationship Manager with CAM.
