‘Impact Investor: Stop Trying To Help People Without Including Them In The Conversation’

“The Conscious Investor” is presented by Nuveen.

Morgan Simon learned that she could impact change in a big way when she was a student in college. Simon compelled Lockheed Martin to change their LGBTQ policies by convincing her college to file a shareholder resolution.

She has since spent nearly 20 years in impact investing and helped influence about $150 billion invested in the space.

Simon says impact investing can often fall short or be somewhat misguided. She says, “We’re often making decisions from the 30th floor of a high-rise on Wall Street and not taking our orders from affected communities.
