Conversations with bright minds and problem solvers exploring the opportunity for systemic change in a time of great ferment, division and dislocation. Hosted by Monique Aiken. Produced by ImpactAlpha.
Foxworth, CEO of Oakland.-based Common Future, gets personal in conversation with host Monique Aiken in the latest episode in The Reconstruction, the new podcast series from ImpactAlpha. In their conversation, Foxworth and Aiken range from the need to confront power, to possibilities for reparative investing to empathy in a time of division.
Host Monique Aiken sits down with sociologist and demographer Jessica Barron and her colleague Marion Johnson to discuss how women of color have mobilized themselves to protect and expand the rights to vote, and in the process turned themselves into key players in the future of democratic rule.
Traditional due-diligence and risk-assessment frameworks in the asset management industry have led to a system in which white, male asset managers control 98.7% of the investment industry’s $69 trillion in assets under management. Enter Due Diligence 2.0, a new framework aimed at catalyzing the movement of capital to BIPOC managers.
Monique gets the scoop on Due Diligence 2.0 from the team that helped craft it: Rachel Robasciotti, Founder and CEO of Adasina Social Capital; Brent Kessel, Founder and CEO of Abacus Wealth Partners; Tracy Gray, Founder and Managing Partner of the 22 Fund; and, Erika Seth Davies, Founder of the Racial Equity Asset Lab.
Melissa Bradley founded 1863 Ventures to accelerate and invest in Black and Brown founders and to demonstrate entrepreneurship as a viable pathway. For the inaugural episode of The Reconstruction, she joins Monique Aiken to discuss how historical awareness guides 1863's investment thesis, how the investing community has reacted to the BLM Movement, and much more.
