This Wednesday, ICA CEO, Allison Kelly will be speaking at the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business as part of the school’s Timely Conversation’s series hosted by the Sustainable and Impact Finance Initiative. She will be joined by Tracy Gray, Founder and Managing Partner at The 22 Fund.
The powerhouse women leaders will tackle the broad topic of “Equity in Investing”, discussing the ways in which impact investors can lead on race and gender equity. The two will particularly focus on the steps that early-stage investors can take to lead, and eventually, create systemic change.
Allison will draw on personal experience leading an organization with a vision of creating an economy that works for all and guiding ICA to a reimagined mission explicitly focused on building equity by closing the racial and gender wealth gaps. Tracy Gray brings experience leading The 22 Fund, an impact, growth equity and advisory firm with a mission of creating the clean, quality jobs of the future by increasing the global competitiveness of manufacturing companies, intentionally targeting women- and BIPOC-owned businesses. A few years ago, Tracy Gray also hosted an influential TEDx talk titled, “Why It’s Time for Women to Be Sexist with Investment Capital” (watch the video below).
The conversation will moderated by Jessie Tang, Head of Strategic Initiatives at Gratitude Railroad. The best news is, you can still join the event!
