Sister Ruth Joins Board
Seventh Generation Interfaith Coalition for Responsible Investment (SGI) is a coalition of faith and values-driven institutional investors who view the management of their investments as a powerful catalyst for social change.
The annual Seventh Generation Conference aims at educating membership on different socially responsible investing tactics, providing an opportunity to network with other members and supporters, and celebrate a year of engagement and growth.
Again this year Marquette Center for Supply Chain Management hosted the event. The theme was Impact Investing: Social Return on Investment. Reverend Seamus Finn, Missionary Oblates Director of Justice, Peace & Integrity of Creation and Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility Board Chair, opened the event with a keynote speech followed by an expert panel discussion and a reception.
The panelists were Sister Dorothy Pagosa – Director for Social Justice, Sisters of St. Joseph – Third Order of St. Francis (moderator), George Hinton – Chief Executive Officer, SDC (Social Development Commission), Greg Lane – CFO, Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart, Salli Martyniak – President, Forward Community Investments, and Ken Vander Weele – Partner and Co-Founder, Creation Investments Capital Management, LLC
