I’m excited to share that an article I wrote about the outlook for women and investing in 2023 was featured this week in the Green Money Journal’s annual women’s issue.
The article addresses women’s role as leaders of the movement toward a sustainable financial system, despite challenges that environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing faced over the last year.
These challenges included accusations of greenwashing from the left, an attempt to outlaw aspects of sustainable investing from the right, increased scrutiny from regulators, and confusion about the best way to measure and report corporate impacts on society and the environment.
Yet 2022 was not without positive developments as well. The increased attention from regulators, for example, will lead to higher standards for social and environmental reporting from both corporations and financial services providers. Shareholders are increasing their level of engagement with companies. A record number of shareholder proposals were filed in 2022, and that number is likely to grow in the coming year.
Most importantly, 2023 will offer even more opportunities for women to use our money and our professional influence to push companies towards gender equity and a carbon neutral economy.
