What roles do environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors play in shareowner engagement and “best in class” impact investing today? Join The Christian Science Monitor and the SRI Conference with CSRwire for a Twitter Chat to discuss the efficacy of socially responsible investing in conjunction with the release of The Monitor’s First Annual SRI Guide:
The chat, to be hosted by CSRwire's Editorial Director Aman Singh, will include G. Jeffrey (Jeff) MacDonald, correspondent for The Christian Science Monitor, and Steven Schueth, co-founder of the SRI Conference and president of First Affirmative Financial Network.
