You’re invited! Join IPFI for a breakfast discussion on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 at 8:15 am. RSVP Required.

America’s public pensions are faced with increasing pressure from outside stakeholders to influence their investment strategies. This pressure includes everything from urging pensions to divest from various holdings, to the outsized influence that proxy advisory firms leverage to push environment, social and governance (ESG) initiatives. Join experts from across the public, academic, and nonprofit sectors to discuss these issues and the latest in public pension policy.
