This call featured a presentation by an emerging Student-Led Shareholder Engagement Network. The Network aims to provide resources and a structure for student leaders to connect year over year to advance shareholder engagement work by student groups (within and outside of student-managed investment funds) across higher education institutions for the purpose of promoting sustainability and environmental and social corporate responsibility.

IEN Initiative calls are only open to IEN Members and/or students, faculty, or staff stakeholders at colleges and universities pursuing the development and implementation of sustainable investing education. Contact Nicole Torrico at [email protected] with any questions, for more information, or to get involved.
SIILK has three main goals:
- Scale the uptake of sustainable investing education, including courses and experiential education opportunities like Student-Managed Investment Funds (SMIFs),
- Support SMIFs as they work to build stronger bridges between their SMIF and their institution’s broader endowment, and
- Increase the diversity and number of students that enter the sustainable investing field.
Through SIILK, IEN is working to ensure higher education institutions develop the next generation of investment and finance leaders committed to an equitable, low carbon, and regenerative economy.
