    Betsy Zeidman, Adjunct Fellow, Milken Institute. In recent years, impact investing has grown beyond a niche concept to emerge among mainstream investors and the high net worth community. Some of this stems from the challenge of finding returns among the usual investments in the current economy. World events play a role in heightening interest, as do concerns among the next generation of high net worth investors with the nonfinancial consequences of their ventures. A growing number of deals generate both financial returns and social or environmental impact. But how are the deals actually done? How can you make money and have impact? On this panel, experienced impact investors will delve into examples. What makes these deals work? What should investors realistically expect? What challenges should they anticipate?

From sharpening missions to increasing focus on execution, measurement, outcomes and impact, a social investment revolution is underway. With government budget crises and retrenchment in social services, attention is shifting to the private sector and the innovations and solutions that will drive philanthropy's future. Yet even the most successful philanthropists may lack the financial resources necessary to accomplish audacious goals. How are they tackling the great challenges? How do they leverage their resources to drive change? What are the impediments? Is collaboration achieving results?

The members of this panel will change the way you think about social services, turning the traditional "beneficiary" model upside down. They've worked for years to transform the antiquated "givers and takers" paradigm to one of investment and return. Amid the heated rhetoric of the recent election season, these individuals were moved to make their voices heard. You will meet a young leader of peacemaking and social change efforts in schools, a community member working to LIFT up her neighbors while combating poverty in novel ways, and a former inmate who's reducing recidivism by changing the trajectory of current inmates' lives through education. Join us for an eye-opening conversation about creating sustainable programs that empower, inspire and challenge us all.
