Hear three national speakers present information about Investing in Women – companies with more women in senior management tend to have higher returns on capital, lower volatility, greater client focus and increased innovation. Panelists include:

•    Kathleen McQuiggan leads the Women & Wealth initiative for PAX International, which runs a mutual fund for gender equality. Based in Portsmouth, N.H., she has 25 years of experience with major investment firms and a deep understanding of the role women play in corporate America.
•    Celia Mueller CFP ®  has  been advising clients how to build sustainable, responsible & impact portfolios going on 20 years. She is a member of the Progressive Asset Management Group in Portland, and the First Affirmative Financial Network.
•    Justin Conway heads the investment programs at Calvert Foundation, which has a women’s initiative supporting entrepreneurs in the U.S. and abroad. He has focused on Impact Investing for 15 years and is based in Washington, D.C.

Each will provide pertinent information on how SRI investing that looks at gender issues is making a difference, not only for women, but for the financial bottom line for companies and communities.

There is so much happening in the world around women’s issues – issues that will make a difference to your family, your work place, and your future, because economic issues that impact women, impact EVERYBODY.  Women are not a niche or a sector of society or the investment market.  When women are empowered, favorable outcomes impact all of society.
