In March 2023, Criterion Institute hosted a virtual training on "Using Finance as a Tool for Social Change.” Whether you are a social change actor seeking to understand how finance can advance your organization’s mission, an investor looking to deepen your social impact, or a policy maker navigating the innovative finance landscape, our TOOLKIT workshops are designed to help you explore possibilities of how you might use systems of finance as a tool to advance gender equality and social justice goals. Regardless of your starting place, experience, or comfort with finance you will find that the TOOLKIT workshop creates a much-needed bridge between the worlds of finance and social change.This is a unique opportunity to expand your financial imagination and explore possibilities for using finance to advance gender equality goals. You will leave this workshop with a new understanding of your power to influence finance and use the system as a tool that contributes to the change you’d like to see in the world.
