The ESG For Impact Conference Scholarship



IEN is pleased to support the ESG For Impact! Scholarship Program. ESG for Impact! will take place October 11–13, 2023 at the Omni Interlocken Resort Hotel in Broomfield, CO.

This in-person event is focused on the interests of client-facing advisors and planners, along with portfolio managers who integrate ESG (environment, social, governance) data into the investment decision-making process. It’s a community gathering of investment professionals who work with investors to catalyze a shift to a more socially equitable and environmentally sustainable economy (more information here).

The ESG for Impact! Scholarship Program is a project of the emeritus representatives of First Affirmative Financial Network. The purpose is to ensure that the culture, commitment, and competence of the advisors who pioneered the practice of sustainable, responsible, impact investing be sustained and expanded with new generations of investment professionals. Both full and partial scholarships are available and all will cover conference registration which includes meals. Room and transportation will be provided as needed.

Given the mission of IEN, and the stated desire of many of our conference attendees “to have their students learn what they are learning” it is our pleasure to help administer this program.
