Welcome to the April issue on Women & Investing

It’s good to be back writing an introduction. First, I want to thank Mark Regier of Everence Financial, who served as Guest Editor of our February issue on “Faith & Investing.” The writers presented what proved to be among our most thought-provoking issues to date, asking us to focus on the world our investments are helping to create, and questioning not only what we profit from, but also what we refuse to profit from.
Over the next 18 months, beginning with this April 2015 issue, we are doing three editions on “Women & Investing,” because women’s financial empowerment and business leadership are vitally important to all of our readers and to our collective futures. We begin with a great group of writers, including Sallie Krawcheck and Joe Keefe of the Pax Ellevate Management, Mellody Hobson of Ariel Capital Management, Amy Domini of Domini Social Investments, and Amanda Steinberg of the well-known website DailyWorth interviewed by Elsie Maio of Humanity, Inc.
Finally, we hope you have had a chance to read our March issue on “The Future of Water.” Water is the current of life felt everywhere in our world. The issue featured many perspectives for water users and sustainability investors, including a compelling article by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. of the Waterkeepers Alliance.
You will find both the “Faith and Investing” and “The Future of Water” issues in our easy-to-access archives here on GreenMoney.com
