On Monday, April 21, OPIC’s President and CEO Elizabeth Littlefield, along with representatives and guests from the U.S. National Advisory Board to the Social Impact Investment Task Force (NAB), rang the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange to raise awareness about the role of public and private innovation and entrepreneurship in solving our greatest social challenges.
Littlefield is the only U.S. Government representative in the NAB, a group of 27 thought leaders, private investors, entrepreneurs, and academics that represent foundations, think tanks, impact enterprises, nonprofits, coalitions, and intermediaries. The group grew out of the June 2013 G8 meeting and represents a unified international effort to explore the possibilities for impact investing to accelerate economic growth and to address some of society’s most important issues. Their purpose is to highlight key areas of focus for U.S. Policymakers in order to support the growth of impact investing and to provide counsel to the global policy discussion.
