PROFESSOR IAN F. HANEY LÓPEZ (Berkeley Law)
“Dog Whistle Politics: Race and Surging Wealth Inequality for All”
Talk at 4:00 p.m., followed by Wine and Cheese Reception
MCLE Credits Available
Ian Haney López is the John H. Boalt Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley, where he teaches in the areas of race and constitutional law. His current research emphasizes the connection between racial divisions and growing wealth inequality in the United States. His most recent book, Dog Whistle Politics: How Coded Racial Appeals Have Reinvented Racism and Wrecked the Middle Class, lays bare how conservative politicians exploit racial pandering to convince many voters to support policies that ultimately favor the very rich and hurt everyone else.
Ian is also the author of White by Law as well as Racism on Trial, books that explore the legal construction of race. A constitutional law scholar, he has written extensively on how once-promising legal responses to racism have been turned into restrictions on efforts to promote integration. He has been a visiting law professor at Yale, New York University, and Harvard, where he served as the Ralph E. Shikes Visiting Fellow in Civil Rights and Civil Liberties. He holds a master’s in history from Washington University, a master’s in public policy from Princeton, and a law degree from Harvard. In 2011, Ian received an Alphonse Fletcher Fellowship, awarded to scholars whose work furthers the integration goals ofBrown v. Board of Education, and he currently serves as a Senior Fellow at Demos.
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL 1ST QUARTER 2015.

“Pathways to Impact Investing”
There is a growing interest to combine personal investment choices with meaningful social and environmental impact. Coined in 2007, Impact Investing now encompasses a broad array of investment choices. Pathways to Impact Investing will help you understand the sector landscape, plan your impact strategy, and learn from other impact investors how they make direct and indirect investments. This case-led 3 day course is hosted by Santa Clara University in collaboration with Toniic, SV2 and TPW – The Philanthropy Workshop – and presents a practical guide for investors. It is oriented toward asset owners and advisors who are serious about including impact in their investment choices. Participants will come away with a better understanding of investment choices and impact measures, techniques for assembling a portfolio, and a personalized action plan for making impact investments.
The Impact Sector:
Explore the ‘theory of change’ that drives the sector and its work to use money and market building to affect positive social and environmental outcomes both domestically and abroad. Learn about the people and organizations that have built the sector to date and examine the results earned so far. Gain an understanding of terms used by investors in the field and resources available to sector participants.
Take a deep look at examples and results from active portfolios in the impact sector. Learn about the broad asset choices that are now available to investors – from passive placement of funding to very active direct investments. An understanding of impact metrics will also be included. Filled with personal and professional examples, the course leaders will take you through how they have made investments and the tools they use to consider and ultimately choose an investment. This lively interaction will look at finding and screening investment opportunities, understanding terms of investments and structures used, and convey anecdotes on post-investment experience.
Impact investing is deeply rooted in a values-centered approach. During Pathways to Impact Investing, you will have a chance to form your own impact strategy and work on aligning your interests with your actions. Pathways to Impact Investing will also provide you materials to help structure your impact investing plan, create a personalized investment policies statement, and identify the ‘next steps’ surfaced during the course.
Join us for an immersive, values-centric 3 day session on impact investing.
