Equality Impact Investing blog: Social Investment – Is it Perpetuating or Challenging Inequality and Discrimination?

Owen Dowsett from the Dartington Hall Trust’s Centre for Social Justice Innovation published a March 2018 blog on the Equality Impact Investing (EII) Project.

This project aims to better understand and improve the extent to which the UK social investment sector is tackling discrimination and advancing equality and human rights.

EDF are contributing to the development of this important project.

Equality Impact Investing call for evidence

‘Despite growing social investment to tackle inequality, there is limited evidence that it has benefited the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector’.

This is from the Equality Impact Investing (EII) Project, which aims to better understand and improve the extent to which the UK social investment sector is tackling discrimination and advancing equality and human rights.
