25 years of impact with Cordaid Investments is a milestone for the whole industry as well. A quarter of a century ago, Cordaid issued the first loan to an institution in Latin America and from there gradually increased our scope and scale. We were at the
dawn of impact investing, and now we are looking to celebrate the 25th anniversary with a special project. Join us in exploring the past, present and the future of impact investing.
We are just a week away from the Global Webinar on October 6, 2022, which aims to recognize the milestones that have been achieved through Cordaid’s investments over the past 25 years. Furthermore, our speakers, renowned industry leaders and in-house experts, will discuss how to advance development finance in the future.
Tune into the conversation about the future of investing in social causes with our keynote speaker Tynesia Boyea-Robinson.

Tynesia has published articles featured in the Washington Post, Forbes and more, and her most recent book is "The Social Impact Advantage: Win Customers and Talent By Harnessing Your Business For Good."

Heather is in charge of investment origination for highly developmental transactions aligned with USAID programs, primarily in West Africa. Before joining DFC, Heather promoted mission-driven investments, catalyzing finance from investors and corporations toward businesses in emerging markets to reach sustainable development goals (SDGs).
