“Be anxiously concerned with the needs of the age ye live in, and center your deliberations on its exigencies and requirements.”-Bahá’u’lláh
This webinar covers how to concretely apply spiritual principles of social and environmental justice to personal banking and investing (asset management) choices. Attendees will be introduced to the concepts of ‘ESG’ (environmental, social and governance metrics) as they apply to finance and the economy and the ways by which personal banking deposits and asset management investments are leveraged for social and environmental harm and good. Spiritual texts such as those from the Bahá’í Faith will be used. There will also be a practical discussion of available resources to support aligning one’s own banking and investing with faith-based principles of justice.
