Sister Barbara Jennings, CSJ, to speak on Environmental, Social & Governance Issues

Please join the Franciscan Sisters and Sister Barbara Jennings of the Sisters of St Joseph of Carondelet on Tuesday, Nov 8, 2022 at 6:30 pm (Central time) live at Tau Center in Kirkwood, MO or via Zoom for the Franciscans For Earth Eco-Series speaker presentation entitled “Successes & Stalls; Leaders & Laggards.”

Do your investments really make a difference? For the Earth? For Human Rights? Corporate Lobbying Expenses?

Recent studies on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues are showing definite impacts on corporations, their bottom line and investor bottom line.

This discussion will not only focus on the moral impact of your investments, but also on how you are saving money in the short and long term! You will learn why most Investor Services are now offering ESG choices and how you and future generations will benefit. We will see why ESG is here to stay… and how you can make a difference.

Sister Barbara Jennings, CSJ, represents her community with the Seventh Generation Interfaith Coalition for Responsible Investment. She was born in St. Louis, and graduated from Fontbonne College with English for Secondary Degree. She entered the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet in 1966. Barbara has taught high school in Waco, TX and Kansas City, MO. She has also facilitated Religious Studies classes on the University level at Avila and Fontbonne MBA students.
