At Cornerstone Capital Group, we have always been committed to investing with gender lens – it’s part of our heritage as a woman-owned investment firm, and equity and inclusion are core values.  One of our first clients to embrace a total gender lens portfolio was the Ms. Foundation for Women (www.forwomen.org).  We are proud to partner with the Ms. Foundation as their investment advisor and as a thought partner on important matters facing women and girls including addressing the prevalence of sexual and gender based violence (as in our recent report).

On April 10 we were thrilled to welcome Teresa Younger, President & CEO of the Ms. Foundation, for an event we co-hosted in Denver with the Women’s Foundation of Colorado (www.wfco.org).  The event was attended by many leading investors and philanthropists in Colorado. Here are a few photos from the evening.
