Faith, Money, and Promoting Inclusive Development
October 20, 2017
2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Location: Berkley Center Third Floor Conference Room
The Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (ICCR) has a long history of leading and challenging notions of ethics and accountability in the financial system through robust engagement with private institutions and corporations. Founded with the mission of building a more just and sustainable world by integrating social values into corporate and investor actions, the ICCR is often faced with navigating complex and controversial issues, ranging from banking, to mining, to labor practices.
At this event, Séamus Finn, ICCR Board Chair, and Jo-Marie Griesgraber of New Rules for Global Finance, which shares a similar mission to ICCR, pulled from their collective experience to explore current challenges of inclusive and economically sustainable global development within a fragile and constrained ecosystem. They also addressed how people of faith are contributing to these debates—both through the alignment of their investments with principles of their faith and by using their voice for advocacy in the public square.
