"Racial and economic disparities have deepened over the past several months, and many of us feel called to address it. We are excited to present an expert panel who will discuss investment strategies that advance socioeconomic equity, as well as what institutions are doing to enhance diversity in the investment industry. I encourage all Episcopalians who have an interest in learning more to join us on January 14."
The panelists will include: Daryl J. Carter, Founder, Chairman, and CEO, of Avanath Capital Management, LLC; Jasmine N. Richards, CFA, Head of Diverse Manager Research at Cambridge Associates; Christopher Rowe, CFA, Managing Director, Investments, Church Pension Group; and Bobby Turner, Principal and Chief Executive Officer of Turner Impact Capital.
