A word from our Director of Program & Experience, Melanie Greblo

The world has quite figuratively turned on its axes since the 2019 Impact Investment Summit Asia Pacific. The global pandemic has intensified inequities, particularly for women and girls, and our climate picture continues to loom large as the overlooked child in the classroom with her hand raised earnestly, inviting attention. 

It’s our time. Time to ride the global surge in impact investing. Time to accelerate the movement to create a more just, inclusive and equitable future for all – when we rise together, for each other and the planet, we rise stronger than ever.
