Inspiring the Next Generation of Sustainable Investors
IEN works to ensure higher education institutions develop the next generation of leaders committed to a sustainable economy through:
The SIILK Network (Sustainable & Impact Investing Learning & Knowledge) is a peer learning network of students, faculty, and staff that are involved in the management and development of student-managed investment funds, as well as the teaching and development of sustainable investing curriculum. SIILK participants connect to share best practices and resources to advance sustainable investing strategies in student-managed funds and curricula.
IEN and the Crane Institute are pleased to support and help administer The ESG For Impact Conference Scholarship. The scholarship was started and is coordinated by a group of First Affirmative Financial Network alumni and longtime affiliates, with the goal of offering full scholarships to a diverse group of qualified students and young professionals who are interested in a career as a sustainable investment professional.
