Achieving Social Impact: To Scale or Not To Scale?

“The dilemma of whether to scale or not to scale will eventually confront every organization seeking social impact – be they for-profit, hybrid, non-profit, or public sector. Join us to learn how leading organizations are creatively navigating this dilemma.

Bringing together diverse perspectives and experiences, we will explore strategies for maximizing impact while considering questions of breadth, depth, reach, and size of the organization and its offerings.”

HIP’s Founder Paul Herman will be contributing to the discussion.

The California Divestment Forum

“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.”

HIP’s own Shilpa Andalkar will be emceeing and moderating panels.

The New Metrics of Sustainable Business Conference

“As the definition of value continues to evolve, the demand for business to demonstrate its ability to create value of various forms for all stakeholders – rather than simply profit for shareholders – is increasing, and the question of how this value is identified, measured and communicated becomes paramount.

Beginning with a step back to ask ourselves, What is the point of business and economics anyway? – this 2-day, in-depth discussion with some of sustainability’s top strategists will examine leading-edge work that is expanding the way business creates, quantifies, and manages the value it delivers through the metrics it adopts.”
