NURTURING TOMORROW'S LEADERS,
INVESTING IN OUR FUTURE
Webinar | 5 Nov 2021 | SDG Dialogue Series: The Role of Private Equity in Delivering SDGs
On 5 November 2021, GIIA hosted its first webinar in the SDG Dialogue Series discussing the role of private equity in delivering SDGs.
In collaboration with the Graduate Institute Geneva's Centre for Finance and Development, we invited UN SDG-Impact vis-a-vis BlueOrchard and Lightrock to discuss the momentum of private equity funds going beyond ESG integration and dedicating themselves to impact investing as well as current approaches, good practices and specific challenges and opportunities for Private Equity funds to deliver important outcomes across SDG themes.
Founded in September 2021, Geneva Impact Investing Association is the Graduate Institute's first student initiative focusing on impact investing, sustainable finance, and ESG. We aim at enabling and inspiring our future leaders to recognise and contribute their personal capacity in international governance and finance to the emerging field of impact investing.
GIIA strives to contribute to:
Forging and scaling up sustainable economy with discussion and research;
Equipping its members with the knowledge, skills, and network necessary to succeed in the field of Impact Investing.
Our work is underpinned by three central tenets:
Knowledge and hands-on skills development: Student-Managed Investment Fund, workshops with corporate partners
Promoting understanding of impact investing: we are aware that there is a discrepancy between public, development and private sector. We would like to enhance students' understanding towards impact investing through research, podcast, webinar e.t.c.
Careers: networking opportunities with the impact investing professionals to gain in-depth insights into the career opportunities
