Third Thursday’s are back! Join us for Catalyst’s first Third Thursday of the year. What’s that, you say? Third (Thirsty) Impact Thursday is our impact investing happy hour where we gather folks to hear about the latest in the field from a leader in the space and connect with one another. 

This series of impact investing socials is just the right blend of content and connectivity. Bringing you the latest ideas and stimulating conversations while building community. Each session features a guest speaker who we hope will provide an opportunity to expand your knowledge and/or your network. 

We’re back with a bang: this month’s gathering will feature MetLife Investment Management and Affirmative Investment Management.
