Location: Initiatives of Change, 24 Greencoat Place, London SW1P 1RD, UK
A one-day training workshop- delivered by Rob Lake and Sarah Rozenthuler
The field of responsible investment and ESG is maturing. Experienced practitioners know that real integration of RI/ESG into an investment institution – whether that is an asset owner or an asset manager – is about leadership and change management. Alongside technical knowledge of ESG issues and their financial implications, leading this change successfully requires highly developed ‘soft’ skills – including communication, listening, building trust and collaboration, organisational networking, and understanding and shaping an organisation’s culture at all levels. Beyond the numbers and the spreadsheets, this is about people, and about being a leader within the organisation. These are the skills you will strengthen on this programme.
If you work in environmental and social risk in a bank, or in corporate sustainability or CSR, you face many of the same challenges. This programme is suitable for you too.
