The discussion, moderated by Elaine Mandelbaum, General Counsel at Interactive Brokers, will focus on the emerging dialogue around impact investing, taking a deep dive into the topics of transparency and integrity in investing and how women are leading the way in values-aligned companies.
“The incredible growth of ESG investing in the past couple of years has brought so much awareness around sustainability and has had a profound effect on how we are choosing to invest in our futures,” said Elaine Mandelbaum. “I look forward to the sharing of ideas amongst our panel of experts as we take a look at the complicated realities surrounding the dynamics of money and investing in our world today.”
The “Women Investing for IMPACT” webinar will cover a variety of topics including:
- What it means to be a values-driven company
- How our money is an extension of our truth
- Looking to address societal inequalities through each financial decision
- Every investment is an impact investment; our consciousness about the impact is a choice.
Confirmed panelists for the discussion include:
- Suzanne Lerner, Co-Founder and CEO of Michael Stars and the Michael Stars Foundation
- Nioma Narissa Sadler, Majority Shareholder & Goodwill Ambassador of Traditional Medicinals, and Founder of WomenServe
- Ali Motroni, Impact Investing Advisor at Align Impact

“Gender lens and racial lens investing redefines the whole notion of diversifying your investments,” said Suzanne Lerner, President and CEO of Michael Stars. “I’ve elevated my approach beyond traditional methods like asset class and sector to invest in companies that are diversifying their leadership to include more women of color. As an investor and entrepreneur, I have seen that diversity of leadership is a competitive advantage. As a human being, I love that I can play a direct role in improving the lives of women and girls by supporting their businesses. We can all learn to align our values with our investments. And this panel of women will definitely inspire you to do it!”
IMPACT by Interactive Brokers makes it easy for investors to find and invest in companies that share their values. Investors select their personal investment criteria from 13 impact values and principles and exclude investments based on 10 categories. Based on these selections, the app provides impact scores on existing portfolios and holdings and identifies companies that align with investors’ selected criteria. This, along with the ability to view financial metrics and news for stocks while examining companies’ impact scores, affords investors the opportunity to improve their alignment through the selection of alternative companies in a simple and efficient manner. The app also allows users to give back to communities by donating to charities that align with their values through the GIVE feature.
