BASIC presents: Sustainable Development Goals & Socially Responsible Investing: Focus on Inequality

October 22, 2015 @ 5:30 PM

Inequality takes many forms, from post-incarceration inequality to broad financial inequality. It also has varied and diverse impacts on our society, which is probably why so many of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) touch on the topic:


SDG #1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere

SDG #8: Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all

SDG #10: Reduce inequality within and among countries

SDG #16: Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels 



This BASIC session will use a panel format to:

(i) outline the investment and societal ramifications of inequality, and

(ii) propose potential solutions to reduce inequality.



The panel and will include panelists from MFS Investment Management (Rob Wilson), Walden Asset Management (Carly Greenberg, CFA), and Zevin Asset Management (Sonia Kowal).
