Policy Briefing - How to Understand, Adapt to, and Influence the Rules of a Sustainable Economy

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this workshop, participants will learn about how regulators in Europe and the U.S. are reshaping the investment and business landscape, and make plans to take action to shape and respond to the evolving policy context. Some questions we’ll answer together during the workshop include:
Who is proposing, evaluating, and enforcing the rules around the environmental, social, and governance priorities in our economy?
Which of those rules are likely to change, and how can you prepare as an investor?
How can you - as a student, higher education staff member, investor, researcher, or other stakeholder in our economy - help shape the rules to promote racial justice, environmental justice, climate action, and responsible corporate governance?
Which organizations, resources, and tools already exist to help us take action?

This will be an active discussion, with participants joining breakout groups to discuss timely opportunities for action.
