I can change the world, with my own two hands
Make a better place with my own two hands
Make a kinder place, with my own two hands
– Song by Ben Harper, Diamond on the Inside. 2003
Our new issue focuses on the importance of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), the extent to which DEI is important for investors – and the potential risks of failing to take it into account when making investment decisions.
Doesn’t it seem like our understanding of the impact of DEI on investing should be further evolved by now? Our contributors within the SPOTLIGHT section of this digest point to a variety of ways that companies benefit from social oriented policies – and examples of some who have not.
They will discuss the impact of how a company treats its employees, its community and the fairness of how it utilizes its capital on its performance. Do DEI considerations affect every aspect of the business – supply chains, product or service strategies, logistics and human resources? Clearly, a Socially Inspired Investor will take DEI into consideration – perhaps as much as other ratios or quantitative factors. We know you will enjoy listening to our PODCAST guest, Lorraine Wilson, Chief Impact Officer and Head of ESG Methodology at Novata, who brings it all together.
We hope you continue to benefit from the work we do here at the Socially Inspired Investor and our thought leadership. Please feel free to pass us along to others.
Welcome to 2022, everyone!
