Sophie Duncan Accepts SDG Leadership Award on behalf of E.T. Jackson and Associates

On November 14, Sophie Duncan, a Researcher with the firm and an MBA student at the Rotman School at the University of Toronto, accepted on behalf of our firm the SDG Leadership Award in the small-business category from the Global Compact Network Canada. In her remarks, Ms. Duncan highlighted some of our evaluation, research and field-building work in impact investing and gender lens investing as a means of advancing SDG#8 on decent work and economic growth.
She also sounded a call to action: “There is no time to waste in addressing climate change and inequality. It is time for us to address these urgent issues with the full force of the resources available to us. As leaders in businesses and non-profits and more importantly, as human beings, we have a responsibility to use our money, our time, and our power to act boldly and courageously on climate change and inequality. Every day, we must push ourselves and our organizations to do more and to do better for the good of our planet and society. I can’t think of a better reason to go to work.”
