    Fearless Communications Webinar for Responsible Companies

    Why you need Fearless Communications

    Today’s business climate is about so much more than simply producing products and earning a profit. Society is urging corporate America to become part of the solution to some of our greatest challenges like gun control, climate change, hunger, and racism. Businesses are expected to have values and to vocalize them. How can companies put words to their values and actions, while being authentic and keeping their eye on the financial bottom line?

    Proper messaging around corporate social missions drives sales. Sales lead to profits. Profits enable businesses to do more good work. It’s a cycle that is building momentum, and not a moment too soon!

    In this Fearless Communications webinar, media expert Jackie Herskovitz Russell shares how marketing and communications teams can compose strong messages and convey them to the public in a compelling way that will positively enhance their brand and drive sales.

    Takeaways

    • Actionable tips to help companies get to the heart of their message
    • Overcome messaging fears that keep companies from taking a stand or sharing their values
    • An opportunity to address specific issues, ask questions, and get answers to your company’s challenges

    New England Impact Investing Initiative is proud to host Matt Patsky, CEO of Trillium Asset Management for an inspiring conversation about how Trillium used shareholder proposals to change the proxy voting policies of the world's largest investor for the benefit of society and the environment. He'll tell the full (and little known) story of Trillium's recent victories and the ripple effect that led to Larry Fink of BlackRock's letter to CEOs, in which he emphasized the fact that "society is demanding that companies, both public and private, serve a social purpose."

    Matt will walk us through how Trillium exercises active ownership by escalating the steps they'll take to advocate for things like gender identity and environmental protections at the world's largest companies, and how they're able to convince the world's largest investors to change their proxy voting policies from voting 100% in accordance with management, to voting to uphold the values they profess to hold. The power of his story is found not only in how Trillium was able to persuade asset managers, but in the fact that employees of the companies Trillium targeted played their part in bringing about a change for the good. Matt will also address proposed changes the Trump administration wants to make to the tools of shareholder advocacy and what implications they have for the future of active ownership.

    Trillium Asset Management is the oldest investment advisor exclusively focused on sustainable and responsible investing. Joan Bavaria founded Trillium in 1982 to provide a space for clients to invest their money in alignment with their values. She is often referred to as the “Founding Mother” of Socially Responsible Investing. Under Joan’s visionary leadership, Trillium grew to become one of the largest SRI investment firms in the U.S. Joan was proud to use Trillium as an incubator to create organizations with impact. Trillium helped nurture US SIF (https://www.ussif.org/), Ceres (https://www.ceres.org/), SIRAN (https://www.ussif.org/projects/siran.cfm) and Open MIC (http://www.openmic.org/). Following Joan’s death in 2008, Matt Patsky joined the firm as CEO, and committed to furthering her legacy.

    After Matt's presentation, we will divide the room into small groups to discuss our own roles in active ownership (every person with a retirement fund owns part of the companies in which the fund is invested), the opportunity to take a hard look at whether we're investing in companies that align with our values, and to learn about the steps asset managers like Trillium take in their quest to encourage public companies to become responsible stewards of society and the environment.

    For libations and further conversation, please join us at a local bar (TBD) after the event.
