The Community Finance Fellowship began as a wild idea to hire good people with diverse lived, learned, and labored experiences and get out of the way. On the one hand, we’d train them on the full lifecycle of impact investing and diversify the talent pipeline in finance. On the other, we’d learn and explore cultural nuances of why capital isn’t flowing in certain communities and inform the broader investment field.
Now two-thirds through their year with us (in a global pandemic no less), the inaugural cohort has learned a lot about the inner workings of an investment firm and taught our team a thing or two.
