Impact Investing with a Gender Lens: Lunch with the Criterion Institute

Join us for the first in a collaborative speaker series between Wharton Women in Business and Wharton Social Impact Initiative.

Joy Anderson

Many believe that investing in women and girls is the most effective way to address poverty –- after all, a women invests 80 cents of every dollar she earns in her family.

On Tuesday, February 24, we invite students to a lunch and dialogue with Joy Anderson, president and founder of Criterion Institute, and a national leader on gender lens investing. A serial entrepreneur and consummate networker, Joy’s leadership and expertise have been at the forefront of the development of the social capital markets over the last 10 years.

In this session, we will discuss what it means to approach impact investing with a “gender lens.” All students are welcome to attend, but you must RSVP by February 20. Please note: if you RSVP and do not attend without notice, that will be taken into consideration for future events.
