FSIcon aims to be the largest, most impactful, most well known conference on sustainable investing in the United States. This one-day event will bring thought leaders, practitioners, policymakers, students, and others, into a collaborative, intrinsically interdisciplinary environment to debate and discuss the role of investing in shaping the future of our planet and society, and therefore enhancing the longevity of the finance industry. The conference is structured around three key themes: Uplifting Underrepresented Voices, Policy in Practice, and Technology & Data.
The event will take place on Friday, March 10th throughout Brown University’s campus. Keynotes, panels, working and networking sessions will be held at various times throughout the conference. More information on specific scheduling will be posted closer to the event date, and all registrants will receive logistical information via email prior to attending.
To bring industry and thought leaders, policymakers, academics, and students together, embolden them to challenge the ways in which we currently invest, and, perhaps more importantly, design the future of our financial systems and practices. The event seeks to motivate attendees to:
Think critically about the legal and societal status-quos that are directing how we invest and what we invest in.
Ideate how this might be changed to more appropriately address the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.
