Her Story: Deborah Frieze of Boston Impact Initiative
October 27, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:45 pmFree
We’re excited for Deborah Frieze to join us on Tuesday, October 29, from 5pm to 6:30pm to tell Her Story of her journey as an investor, and founder of the Boston Impact Initiative (BII). BII provides capital to entrepreneurs in the Boston area focused on economic justice, meaning they invest in opportunity for all people—especially those most oppressed or abandoned by our current economic system—to lead a dignified and productive life. Additionally BII engages in field-building initiatives that challenge conventional beliefs about ownership, competition, profit-making and control—and advance fresh perspectives on democratizing investment, strengthening relationships and building solidarity. As an agent of systems change, Deb is the co-author of the book, Walk Out, Walk On profiling pioneering leaders who walked out of organizations failing to contribute to the common good—and walked on to build resilient communities. Deborah is also a mentor for the RSF Integrative Capital Institute.
