The Student Conference for Corporate Responsibility
Dwight Hall Socially Responsible Investment Fund
April 13, 2019 | 9:30am — 7:00pm
Yale Campus: Dwight Hall, 67 High Street
Description: This will be the first-ever student conference on shareholder engagement/ College students have a long history of public sector activism but rarely engage with companies or investors. When students have challenged corporations, they have demanded divestment but have not considered sustained shareholder engagement. This conference strives to broaden students’ understanding of both activism and finance by educating attendees about the impact of shareholder engagement. Millennials, who will soon become the investors of the future, must see engagement as a standard aspect of portfolio management.
