As a way of kicking off Module 1: (Re)Awakening -- of our Livable Future Investing Workshop, Elizabeth begins by anchoring us in Catholic Social teaching (CST) and some key principles. Felipe then shares three principles for Bold CST embodiment in our impact investing along with 12 questions for diligence. After some discussion of Risk, Returns, and Impact (an essential 3rd dimension for faith-first investors / mission-driven investors), Elizabeth shares some proposed markers on the journey towards faith-embodied investing. A CST Embodiment scorecard is offered as one potential framework.
Topics include transform finance, non-extractive finance, bold faith-embodied investing.
The Economy of Francesco is a Vatican initiative & invitation from Pope Francis that has stirred the hearts and minds of tens of thousands of economists, entrepreneurs and change-makers over the past couple years. It’s now a global movement. Elizabeth Garlow, Felipe Witchger, Elias Crim and others steward the U.S. Hub of this Economy of Francesco – and it’s the inspiration for Elizabeth & Felipe’s creation of the “Francesco Collaborative” – and their support of a project with Elias the Founder and Editor at Ownership Matters. Felipe & Elizabeth also steward the development of FADICA’s Mission Driven Investing program.
