Just like in philanthropy, to effect real change, social justice investing must center the needs of those it seeks to impact. Join this conversation between me and Rachel J. Robasciotti, CEO of Adasina Social Capital about how we can (and should) use investment to support racial justice.
Rachel J. Robasciotti is the CEO and Founder of Adasina Social Capital, an investment and financial activism firm that serves as a critical bridge between financial markets and social justice movements. Rachel’s passion for social justice investing is rooted in her background as a Black, queer woman and growing up in a community that struggled for safety and financial security within a rural town that was largely segregated. Among her many contributions, Rachel has been called upon to testify before the United States Senate regarding the state of financial markets. She is also regularly featured in the media, including The New York Times, Bloomberg, CNBC, Forbes, and Financial Planning Magazine as a leader in the financial industry for integrating issues of racial, gender, economic, and climate justice into investment portfolios. In addition to her work at Adasina, Rachel is a co-creator of the Due Diligence 2.0 Commitment, an effort to transform the investment industry and increase capital flow to Black, Indigenous, and people of color asset managers. She served as Treasurer of the Board of Directors for Resource Generation, is a Board Member for One Fair Wage, and advises the Indigenous Women’s Investment Fund for Native Women Lead.
