(ALL) Social Value Investing with Authors Howard W. Buffett and William B. Eimicke

February 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

For All Students: Social Value Investing presents a new way to approach some of society’s most difficult and intractable challenges. Although many of our world’s problems may seem too great and too complex to solve—inequality, climate change, affordable housing, corruption, healthcare, food insecurity—solutions to these challenges do exist, and will be found through new partnerships bringing together leaders from the public, private, and philanthropic sectors.
