Project: Socioeconomic privilege,inclusion and social investment
This project will address the gap in evidence and understanding of the nature and impact of socio-economic diversity in social investing. The UK social investment industry has taken more deliberate steps to address EDI and there has been focus on protected characteristics of organisation leadership such as ethnicity and gender. However, evidence from outside the social investment space shows that progress on protected characteristics is held back when wider power and privilege dynamics are not taken into account. This project will produce new information and inform change, working collaboratively with social investors to ensure that information collected can be used to inform improved EDI practices.
