is the executive director of Impactphl
(an organization assisting people to align their financial assets with their values) and the guest of episode 42 of the #walktalklisten #podcast
. ImpactPHL‘s mission is to increase investment in impact companies and organizations in Greater Philadelphia by accelerating development and awareness of Greater Philadelphia’s Impact Economy ecosystem and potential, and provide a front door for the region’s impact economy efforts and interests. It’s an ecosystem that supports the work of both for-profit and not-for-profit enterprises that address social needs in the community; through the products and services they produce, and the processes and strategies they employ. Cory shares the importance and power of your investments (like your pension) outside of your vote in creating systematic change.
Cory mentions and refers to a lot of organizations, people and initiatives, we list a couple here: the book of Amy Cortese
, Summer of Funds initiative is coming this summer identifying opportunities to invest in local responsible impact organizations; crowdfunding investing (WeFunder
, and Sharswood
) and Social Enterprises (WearWell

and ROAR for Good

From June 1-8, I will be participating in the Ration Challenge which means I will be eating the same as a Syrian refugee living in a camp in Jordan, based on food packs distributed by the Ration Challenge's local partner organization. By raising money, we'll help bring emergency food, hygiene kits and life-saving support to the people that need it most. It would be great if you can support me or the WALK TALK Listen team by donating by going to the Walk Talk Listen Ration Challenge page
or please share the link with your network.
