ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) Through Different Lenses

TUESDAY, AUGUST 3, 2021  |  12:30 - 1:30 p.m.


As ESG has become more mainstream, this topic has prompted a whole host of questions that will be addressed by our distinguished panelists. For example, how are portfolio managers adjusting their products to meet client demands? How are leading companies changing either their practices or enhancing their businesses to meet ESG demands? How are financial institutions leveraging the capital markets to support ESG goals? What does the future of ESG look like? ESG impacts large corporations, portfolio managers, issuers, and, of course, investors. During the panel discussion we will cover how policy changes and demands from investors are propelling ESG and different ways companies measure success on their ESG goals.

FWSF Diversity and Inclusion Committee Presents: Anti-Asian Hate Awareness with guest speaker Assemblyman David Chiu

One of the many functions FWSF’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee performs is to convey important issues to our Board of Directors. Because you are a valued FWSF Member, we would like to share this presentation video recording with you as an added member-only benefit.

As you may be aware, hate crimes against Asian American Pacific Islanders have skyrocketed over the past year; and this is not altogether new but unfortunately, it’s been a silent symptom that has surged since the pandemic.

FWSF’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee, along with guest speaker Assemblyman David Chiu, have come together to heighten awareness and provide education on how to take action against anti-Asian hate, be better allies, and demonstrate the importance of supporting our AAPI colleagues, families, friends and communities.

The video is in the members-only section of the website under "Event Recording Library."


FWSF President's Diversity and Inclusion Statement

Dear FWSF Community:

Along with many of you, I’ve spent countless hours reflecting on the tragic events of recent days and weeks, wondering what I can do to further the causes of racial justice and peace. I believe that all of us are called to find the role that we can play in moving our society toward reconciliation.
