Equitable access to opportunities for people is the key to a sustainable economy. What can we do to facilitate systemic social change and build an equal world? Tune into the conversation about the future of investing in social causes with our keynote speaker Tynesia Boyea-Robinson.
As an entrepreneur, Six Sigma blackbelt, and technologist, Tynesia is uniquely positioned to catalyze a results-driven era of social change. As President and CEO of CapEQTM, which she founded in 2011, she demonstrated how business and community goals can align towards mutual outcomes, helping Fortune 500 clients like the Carlyle Group, Marriott, and others change the way the world does business. 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."
Tynesia will give an inspiring start to the global webinar on October 6, 2022, dedicated to 25 years of impact with Cordaid. Together with the industry, we have started with microcredit, investing in micro-entrepreneurs and farmers in the most underserved regions in Africa, Asia, and Latin America through MFIs with a social mission. We have promoted the sector's gravitation toward financial inclusion. We are now pioneering SME lending in fragile Sub-Saharan Africa to create quality jobs.
Advancing good practices in the industry has always been our priority – and now, at the global webinar, we are seeking to open a dialogue within the whole industry on how to advance research and an evidence-based approach to impact investing.
