The GIIN’s Next Normal Now is a new inspiring series of virtual convenings, which are designed to reveal systemic changes unfolding in the here and now. Learn from the perspectives of those creating this motivational change starting from the spring of 2021.
The GIIN is igniting a conversation around re-imagining capitalism and inviting YOU to join this year’s signature series of events, Next Normal Now.
Engage with leaders who are disrupting the status quo and innovators who are pushing our economic future not just toward a new normal, but toward the next normal beyond that.
Be a part of this incredible journey as leaders, innovators, investors, and global citizens explore a new vision for our economic future that puts you ahead of the curve. This series will offer vital insights for attendees at any stage of the ‘next normal’ journey and provide inspiration from visionaries painting a picture of their next normal. For impact investors looking for practical tools, new ideas, and conversations around innovative new investments, as well as the impact curious who are eager to learn about how money can do more than just make more money, this is the place for you.
This series of free live virtual convenings will leave you with a greater understanding of impact investing and how this growing movement is leading the way to a more inclusive economy and a more sustainable world. The first convening will focus on Inclusive Economic Growth; sessions on Climate Action and Regeneration will follow in summer and fall 2021.
