Tideline was joined by acclaimed impact investing academic, Cathy Clark, for a Compass Series event to mark the launch of a new Coursera training on Impact Measurement and Management for the SDGs developed by Cathy and her team at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business. The 8-hour online course was developed to democratize technical knowledge about impact management for tens of thousands of enterprises and investors globally and is a core pillar of UNDP’s SDG Impact platform, which funded Duke’s work. In this webinar, Cathy previews the newly-minted course in a one-on-one conversation with Tideline’s Ben Thornley, featuring a discussion of the most critical lessons for investors in impact management.
