When: Thursday, March 15 6 - 8 PM
Where: CIC Boston (50 Milk Street, Boston)

ESG (Environmental Social Governance) metrics are important tools and indicators both for institutional investors and companies trying to assess how financial performance can be affected by this data. For individual impact investors or retail investors using online platforms, trying to make sense of what these metrics actually mean to them and their portfolios is often confusing and daunting. Using a Fireside Chat format, the panel will discuss strategies that our audience can employ to better assess the financial and impact 'strength' of their holdings and evaluate future investment opportunities.

Panelists:
- Meggin Eastman Thwing, MSCI Inc, Boston, MA
- Jillian McGrath, VP, Wealth Management, Bernstein Wealth Management, Boston, MA
- Molly Betournay, Director of ESG Research and Shareholder Advocacy, Clean Yield Asset Management, Norwich, VT

Schedule:
6pm to 6:20pm - Registration check-in and networking
6:20pm - 7:15pm - Fireside Chat with Q&A
7:15pm - 7:40pm - Breakout groups to create one or two metrics that fit the ESG spectrum.
7:40pm - 8pm - Reconvene and wrap up with a representative from each group that will tell us what they came up with and why

Please join the panel at Scholars for post event gathering.
