How Illumen Capital is working to increase racial and gender equity within our financial markets

Please join ImpactPHL and Halloran Philanthropies as we host Essma Bengabsia, Senior Associate, Sustainable & Impact Investing at Glenmede Trust in Philadelphia as she leads a fireside chat between Daryn Dodson, founder and Managing Director of Illumen Capital, and Evelyn Morfin, Manager of Direct Investments at 4S Bay Partners. Illumen Capital is a majority Black-owned and led impact fund working to increase racial and gender equity within our financial markets. They invest capital in the world's top venture, growth, and private equity impact funds, and then equip the fund management teams over the hold period with evidence-based training designed to reduce implicit racial and gender bias. This combination of capital and implicit bias coaching is intended to drive alpha across both social and financial returns.
