Newground Socially Responsible Investing
Come talk with "Money Managers and Investment Provocateurs" Bruce Herbert and Larry Dohrs of Newground Social Investment. Bruce and Larry have proven that investing can be both profitable and principled. You'll hear about their unique brand of shareholder engagement--in which they leverage the power of investors to call corporations to environmental sustainability and social justice. Through shareholder advocacy and dialogue, they've held Nordstrom accountable to its pledge to reduce water usage and they've pressured Chevron for greater transparency on their involvement in countries with human rights abuses. You'll enjoy their stories of success and their lessons learned after years of money management and values-based advocacy. Plus, you might discover why Seattle Magazine readers voted them Best Personal Wealth Managers in Seattle in 2007, 2008, and 2011.
