Kate Simpson

Advisor Membership Associate

Kate earned a master’s degree from Stanford University in international comparative education, where she was able to focus her research on the strategies used by the business community to influence public education policy. A long-standing interest, Kate is excited to continue to explore the ways in which capital can be harnessed to positively influence environmental and social issues.

Kate co-authored a report on multinational corporations and their impact on human rights through an internship with Trillium Asset Management. She was the lead researcher for the article, “100 Best Companies to Work for in America.” Further cementing the connection between financial performance and non-financial measures of success, Kate screened client portfolios based on environmental, social and governance criteria and assisted in providing research and support for several shareholder resolutions at Progressive Asset Management.

Kate is also a volunteer teacher to the refugee and asylum-seeker population in Portland, Maine. She developed an interest in working with other cultures while teaching English abroad at the International School in Geneva, Switzerland and in Prague. She feels fortunate to be able to raise her three children in Maine and thoroughly enjoys the thriving local food scene.
