The 28th annual Conference on Sustainable, Responsible, Impact (SRI) Investing is being held in San Diego this year, for the first time in many years.
Many of the most prominent and influential financial activists will be in our backyard for the first three days of November, speaking to and meeting with financial advisors (like ourselves) who work with investors that want to take an SRI approach.
We're taking advantage of this fact by hosting a Happy Hour Event, to offer the community public access to some of the country’s leading professionals in the field of Socially Responsible Investing (SRI).
WHEN: Thursday, November 2nd, 4-6pm
WHERE: DeskHub (2nd floor), 2159 India Street, San Diego, CA
WHAT: A business casual, happy hour setting (beer, wine and appetizers), socializing with San Diego's conscious investor community and listening to industry leaders describe the past, present and future of our investment landscape and financial system…. What’s the vision and how do we get there?
