100WHF-Stanford PACS Conference: Alpha & Altruism
Our Mission and Ethos
100 Women in Hedge Funds, the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society and Stanford Social Innovation Review are proud to co-sponsor one of the world’s first hedge fund conferences to donate all net proceeds to philanthropy and to focus on a double bottom line. The three organizations' partnership was born out of a shared vision to not only build more innovative fundraising models, but also to create a powerful platform that could channel the power of finance for social change.
How can we inspire collaboration between foundations, allocators, and asset managers that transcends checkbook philanthropy, that pushes the envelope in terms social impact and innovation? Who are the hedge fund professionals fighting for social change when no one is watching? Where are you on your own philanthropic journey, where do you want to go, and how can 100WHF's new platform help you get there?
Oftentimes professionals have the misconception that to create social change, they must be a philanthropist. Yet, the lines between corporations creating absolute returns and social returns are blurring, innovating, and expanding like they have never before. By attending this conference you are helping lead and strengthen a new community of investors.
We hope you can join us for this world-first event that will unite, educate, and inspire A New Era of Alpha and Altruism.
