Events and Opportunities
The initiative has also resulted in the Bunson Impact Investment Challenge, an event in which students pitch investment proposals relating to sustainability and social impact to their peers, professors, and a judging panel of financial professionals. Among other activities, the initiative hosted speakers such as:
- Gwen Ruta, vice president for corporate partnerships at the Environmental Defense Fund
- Fernando de Mello Barreto, Brazilian consul general
In collaboration with the Career Strategies Center, the Bunson Initiative offers support for summer internships at organizations related to finance and society. It also offers travel stipends for students wishing to attend conferences or events in which the content is aligned with global finance, social entrepreneurship, socially responsible investing, and the intersection of finance and society
