***********************************************************

The California Divestment Forum will bring together city government leaders, university endowment heads and financial professionals for a dialogue on divesting from fossil fuels. The forum will provide a unique opportunity for profound discourse on risk, return, and reinvestment; in both a general institutional context and in breakout sessions that focus on the implications of divesting, reinvestment, and institutional values exclusively.  Divestment is a growing movement and we must now map out the path forward for responsibly moving institutional assets into more sustainable investments.

Attendees can benefit from creating a network of city staff, university staff and financial advisors who will work together to understand the benefits and challenges of divesting and to map out the next steps. This high-level audience will interface on the components and significance of fossil fuel divestment.  Investment experts will provide empirical arguments and address concerns of institutions considering divestment or simply interested in becoming more knowledgeable about the topic. The format of the event will provide a structure for questions and concerns to drive the content into specific and sophisticated discussion generated by audience participation.

The forum morning session will begin with a lecture on the historical context of divestment; followed by the 200 list through an ESG lens, a panel on divestment data, and a panel on reinvestment.

In the afternoon, participants will have a chance to participate in open sessions on the implications of divesting, reinvestment, and institutional values.
