YPIN Socratic Seminar
IMPACT INVESTING: The potential and limits of new financial strategies in global development, with special guest moderator, Steve Schwartz of Upaya Social Ventures
Impact investing is getting a lot of buzz these days. In theory, impact investments generate measurable social and environmental impact alongside a financial return. But is it working, and is it the best tool to eradicate poverty, improve health outcomes, and save the environment? Come to YPIN's Socratic Seminar on May 20th to explore these questions and learn more about this rapidly growing field. To help lead this discussion, YPIN is excited to announce that Steve Schwartz, Director of Strategy and Operations at Upaya Social Ventures, will co-moderate the discussion.
Socratic Seminars aren't for telling you the answers; rather they provide a discussion space to explore the questions. It is a moderated discussion around top issues of the day in true dialectic method. Articles highlighting viewpoints on both sides of an argument are provided as suggested reading, although participants are encouraged to participate even if armed only with their opinions. The Socratic Seminar series does not place parameters on where the discussion may go; rather it provides a starting point and background information to fuel discussion.
Socratic Seminars are sponsored by the Row House Café.
Attendance is limited 25 participants per Seminar.
