California’s economy will recover faster than the U.S. post-pandemic, strengthened by the entrepreneurial spirit in the state; technology, entertainment, and logistics industries, and; the development of inland areas, including the Imperial, San Joaquin, and Central valleys (UCLA Anderson Forecast, April 2021).
The promise of a quick recovery cannot overshadow the potential for many people across the state to be left out of economic advancement. How can impact investors support a resilient recovery for all Californians? Join us for a discussion of the current state of California’s economy; hear how the state is planning to support job growth, business assistance, and economic development; and discuss the role impact investing can play to support an equitable recovery for small businesses, and economic advancement for low-income workers.
About This Series
This session is the first in a four-part Philanthropy California learning series for institutional and individual impact investors across California, sponsored by and partnering with RBC Global Asset Management. Additionally, the Philanthropy California Investment Collaborative is a statewide, place-based impact investing initiative that aims to bring together foundations, public funds, individual investors, and, eventually, corporations to align their existing investment portfolios with grants and loans that support affordable housing, healthcare, small business, and environmental justice in targeted communities.
This webinar is for members of Catalyst, NCG, and SCG; it is also open to eligible non-members: family offices, private investors, foundations, institutional investors who are interested in learning about investments into enterprises and strategies that aim to generate financial returns alongside positive social and environmental impact.
