Impact From Home #29 | The ESG Career Boom
15 October 2021 @ 12:00 - 13:00 CEST
The ‘Impact From Home’ virtual interview series
Join us for virtual conversations via Zoom for the latest perspectives and insights to help you drive your impact mission forward, even from home.
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing is seeing its day
What was still considered fringe just five years ago, has grown to be one of the biggest movements the finance and investment sectors have ever seen. Investors are increasingly applying these factors into their analysis to identify material business risks and opportunities, and, in other cases, are simply seeking to use their financial power to create a positive impact on people and the planet.
The great ESG talent boom
As ESG investing accelerates, the financial sector is fighting for talent to fill junior, medior and senior ESG-related positions. It’s an all-hands-on-deck situation. The problem is that there simply aren’t enough hands, especially those with the skills needed to meet the moment. It’s time to upskill, reskill, and get out there.
A look through an ESG recruiter’s view
We’re thrilled to be joined by Lotti Hawkens, ESG Search Consultant at Farrell Associates. Lotti will share insights into the ESG career boom through her experience as a dedicated and passionate ESG & Sustainable Finance head hunter, having worked on global ESG mandates for clients across the investment arena. Living in Barcelona with her partner and two rescue dogs, she works remotely for a unique ESG (only) search firm called Farrell Associates, now specialising in supporting private markets and consulting firms with finding the best ESG talent.
This session will be kindly hosted by Wendy Garces of Women Hiring Circle.
