Events

Confluence’s annual conference, webinars and trainings, and working groups are all focused on translating learning and connection into concrete action on mission-alignment. We  promote mission-alignment through utilization of a variety of asset classes, investment vehicles, and advocacy strategies. These include cash, proxy voting, shareholder engagement, program-related investing, screening public equities, and private equity.

To receive a monthly update of our events only (no other promotions, advertising etc), email info@confluencephilanthropy.org
