Economics & Human Flourishing with Hilda Ochoa-Brillembourg POSTHOC Digital Salon With Susan MacTavish Best

    • Society & Culture

For our last Posthoc salon of 2023 we invited economist Hilda Ochoa-Brillembourg into our living room for an evening of conversation and music.  Hilda is an entrepreneur, investor, author and philanthropist. She is the founder and chairman of Strategic Investment Group, an independent investment management firm. For a dozen years, Hilda was the Chief Investment Officer (Pensions) at The World Bank. She’s served on the board of numerous public companies  (US Airways, McGraw-Hill, Harvard Management, General Mills etc) and nonprofits (National Opera, National Symphony). She is the founder of Orchestra of the Americas  which finds diverse musical talent in underserved communities and gives musicians a platform to develop their talents and launch a career playing music professionally in orchestras around the world. Under the umbrella of OA is the Global Leaders Institute, which offers students an opportunity to study for an MBA for the Arts, a degree supporting artistic innovation and social impact. And so we had the most sublime folk music from half a dozen artists throughout the evening from the OA program which you’ll hear throughout the conversation.

This salon fell under the Economics & Human Flourishing priority at Templeton World Charity Foundation and it was supported by a grant POSTHOC received from the Foundation. TWCF funds grants that investigate individual freedom, free market theories, entrepreneurialism and how they relate to human flourishing globally.
