In this episode we have two leaders in the world of learning, one a tenured professor at a major university that doesn’t really act like someone with job security - he loves to do new things and add to the experience of his students and the industry in general - and the other heads the bestower of the designation in alternative investments and has a storied career of his own. 

This should be fun as we discuss the covid pivot that education and the world is making and how digital transformation has been sped up in all areas of life.

In this episode we are speaking about ESG, with a bit of a focus on the S or Social as you’ll surmise as we get into this.  I’m joined by two from the ESG and impact area: one with decades of grassroots ESG quant background and a platform, now, to determine if as many as 30,000 companies are doing what they say they are.  The other has a broad view of ESG from a chair at a major global association that creates standards that can be used across a variety of industries and fulfilling requirements by many stakeholders.
