    CAIA Atlanta Educational Event

     Atlanta Investment Community Thinks Big Picture

    Impact Investing. Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) investing. Conscious Capitalism. The interest is here! The investment industry is rising to the challenge of creating products/solutions desired by society. There are people in our industry Thinking BIG. For those of us working in the investment industry, but not directly in one of these areas, how can we help? This event will be a conversation about how can we better marry our day jobs in finance with thinking and acting about issues like protecting the environment, building community, fostering education, and encouraging personal growth.


    Several leaders of the Atlanta investment community are going to share their inspirations, actions, and impacts along these lines. We’ll hear how thinking big has helped society, enhanced their careers, and led to personal fulfillment. The format is an interactive panel followed by a short breakout discussion with a chosen panelist.
