Sorenson Impact Center: Rethinking our Economic Systems – A Conversation with Global Impact Leader Delilah Rothenberg

The Global Impact Leaders, from the Sorenson Impact Center, is a diverse and inclusive network of impact practitioners and thought leaders working to solve the world’s most pressing social and environmental problems. In this Q&A, Delilah Rothenberg, an inaugural member of the Global Impact Leaders group, discusses the need for system-level change in how we conduct business and structure markets in order to solve critical issues.

“We take a “macro-to-market” approach. This means engaging in projects like Beyond Bretton Woods, which contributes to the global conversation on rethinking our economic systems, and other projects that create specific tools for investors to implement change. For instance, through a consortium of organizations developing a Taskforce on Inequality-related Financial Disclosures (TIFD) and through our Investor Contribution 2.0 project with our partners at Impact Frontiers, we are helping to steward the co-creation process of disclosures that can support investors in better understanding their contributions to systemic and systematic risks. Through our collaboration with the Responsible Asset Allocator Initiative (RAAI), we are working with institutional asset owners and allocators to rethink how they use financial benchmarks.”
