Article

The future is fast upon us as the stuff of science fiction becomes our daily lives. Technology has evolved at a speed none could have predicted.

There is virtually no part of daily life on Earth that has not yet been hit by the sonic waves of the tech boom. How we live, connect, learn, transact, identify, express, sustain, and find our way has all changed in the blink of an eye.

Board Diversity: Time’s Up on Good Intentions

Article

by Julie Gorte, Ph.D., Senior Vice President, Impax Aseet Management and Pax World Funds 

When I began working to make boards more gender diverse in 2001, the percentage of women on the boards of large companies in the United States was around 12 percent. By 2011, women had gained a few more seats at the table, and by 2016 women held 21 percent of board seats at Fortune 500 companies. At this rate of progress — less than one percent increase per year — it will be three more decades before big companies’ boards achieve gender parity. And that, sadly, is the good news.

Philanthropic Investors Tap “Catalytic Capital” to Seed Innovation & Scale Progress

Article

by Debra Schwartz Managing Director, MacArthur Foundation 

Often, the most compelling impact investments are made, not found.

I have used that phrase over the years to describe how foundations and other impact-focused investors use “catalytic capital” to support social and environmental progress. These patient, flexible, “catalytic” investments are able to take on more risk and/or accept a lower return than commercial capital in order to finance gains that would not otherwise be possible.

Q: How did you end up at Gildan?

My husband and I were living in Arkansas where I was working for a large retail company. He had wanted to move back home to Charleston for a while, so in 2010 we made the big move. To be honest, I was really sad about it. I loved my job back in Arkansas and I never thought I would find another job quite like it here.
