Online - Business Fights Poverty Global Summit 2021 - Leadership
@
The world faces unprecedented convergence of social and environmental challenges. COVID-19 continues to impact the lives, livelihoods and access to learning of the most vulnerable people. Unless action is taken now, these impacts will be long-lasting. At the same time, it is recognised that urgent action on climate change must put people at the centre of efforts on mitigation and adaptation. The transition to a green economy must also be a just one.

Across these challenges, the impacts reflect deep-seated inequities - due to factors including gender, race, and income. COVID-19 has pushed back progress on gender equity and poverty reduction, and climate change is doing the same. People from Black and minority ethnic backgrounds face disproportionate barriers.

While the challenges are unprecedented, so too are the opportunities to tackle them collaboratively. Business is now seen as a key partner, alongside government and civil society.  Employees, customers, stakeholders and shareholders, believe business must take a stand on social and environmental issues. The focus is now on how we can collaborate - to tackle both rapid onset challenges and deeper systemic issues.

Join us for a week of insight and inspiration. We invite you to join us for a week, highly interactive event brings together voices and insights from across the globe, from business, NGOs, academia and government - to share the latest thinking on the nature of the challenges we face, and the nature of the solutions that are needed. Join us to access the very latest thinking so that you can increase the impact of your efforts.

Online - How Do I Grow as a Whole-Life Disciple in Financial Services?
@
‘Is it possible to do what you do as a Christian?’

That was the arresting question LICC’s Work Forum Director Steve Osei-Mensah faced in the middle of a career that revolved around financial services. His response then – as now – was a resounding yes. Not only can you survive as a Christian in financial services – you can thrive and grow as a disciple.

If you’ve ever tackled similar questions about your career, join Steve and a panel of Christians working in banking, insurance, and asset management for the second of two seminars exploring what it means to be a whole-life disciple in FS.

Webinar - how philanthropists & investors are bringing hope & transformation to lives in East Africa.
@
There is nothing quite like the dignity that comes with a good job. Join this online webinar to learn how philanthropists and investors are bringing hope and transformation to thousands of lives by supporting businesses that create and sustain jobs in East Africa.

From building deal flow by equipping early and growth stage entrepreneurs through Sinapis to impact investing in high potential businesses through Talanton, you can empower faith-driven entrepreneurs to help lift thousands of people out of poverty, stand against corruption, and boost the economy. Most importantly, entrepreneurs are making a measurable spiritual impact through evangelism, discipleship and social impact initiatives.

You’ll hear the story of how Sinapis and Talanton worked together to accelerate and invest in Rabboni, a profitable and scalable business in Uganda with 2,300 farmers plus 26 full-time employees and 41 seasonal workers.

Online - Faith Driven Investor Live
@
Faith Driven Investors are scattered all around the world. On top of that, a global pandemic has disconnected us even more. In a season that defaults to loneliness, we’re craving to bring people together again.

The day will represent the best content from leaders across all different asset classes of the Faith Driven Investor Movement—including Private Equity, Real Estate, Emerging Economies, Public Markets, and more.

Investors are gathering in 100 cities across the globe, and you're invited to join others who are on your same journey. Whether this conference serves as your first step or merely a rest stop, you are a part of a movement...and it's growing.

You’re busy, so we’ve made it easy. Find a screen. Find a space. Find a friend (or maybe two), and we'll bring the food.
