  • What Role Should Market-Based Environmental Ratings Play in Capital Markets?

    Panel Discussion | Speaker Series

    -

    The Canadian Expert Panel on Sustainable Finance noted, ‘Financial markets will play a fundamental role in directing necessary capital flows, managing complex risks and unlocking economic potential Markets work best when assets are properly valued; however, in today’s market economy, climate factors are often mispriced and climate risks are generally underappreciated.’ Markets are responding, with firms expanding their voluntary environmental reporting, and third-parties producing investor-focused environmental ratings for firms. Our ½ day session will describe the current state of environmental disclosure and investor-focused ratings. Are these ratings affecting issuers, investors and governments? What determines environmental reporting and investor-focused ratings? What are the risks and opportunities of this capital market response?

  • Expert Discussion on “Transitioning Employers: A Survey of Policies and Practices for Trans Inclusive Workplaces”

    Speaker Series | Panel Discussion

    -

    In Canada, organizations across sectors have recently begun to acknowledge and attempt to address these disparities through a variety of trans inclusion practices and policies such as washroom retrofitting, employee resource groups, mentorship programs and targeted hiring. In 2019, Pride at Work Canada and The Institute for Gender at the Economy at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, partnered to conduct the first trans inclusion workplace policies audit across Canada’s large employers, making use of Pride at Work Canada’s partner network. The results show that large employers are taking some of the first steps towards basic accommodations but still have gaps in providing truly inclusive workplaces.

    The event will focus on launching Transitioning Employers: A survey of policies and practices for trans inclusive workplaces with remarks from Pride at Work Canada, the Institute for Gender and the Economy, followed by a panel of community and corporate partners about the impact of trans policies in the workplace. The evening will conclude with a lively networking reception provided by The Institute for Gender at the Economy.
