Ideas for Breakfast – 19 Jan: Being a Responsible Investor on Nuclear Weapons
Join us for another edition of Ideas for Breakfast on January 19. Breakfast will be served from 8:30 to 9 AM followed by a presentation beginning at 9am sharp.
With Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine, the urgency to address risks associated with nuclear weapons use has grown. 2017 Nobel Peace Prize Winner, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) will provide insights as to the companies involved in the nuclear weapons industry and how what they build is designed to cause mass indiscriminate harm, violate human rights, and contaminate the environment. A short presentation of key findings from the report “Risky Returns” (PDF), will be followed by a discussion about ways in which investors and financiers might engage in reducing nuclear dangers.
Speaker: Susi Snyder
Susi is the financial sector coordinator at the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons. She facilitates engagement with and by the financial sector on nuclear weapons-related issues. For more than a decade, Susi coordinated the Don’t Bank on the Bomb project and has worked on a number of controversial weapons initiatives.
