Roy Family Fellow, Impact Investment Exchange, Singapore
Katharine   Wolf

Katharine worked at the Impact Investment Exchange Asia (IIX), a social enterprise based in Singapore, to help launch Asia’s first social stock exchange.  The goal was to create a trading platform and an efficient capital raising mechanism for Asian Social Enterprises where investors would evaluate businesses in a new way, placing as much importance on the social impact of the enterprise as on its financial returns. Katharine worked directly with IIX’s inspirational female founder, Prof. Durreen Shahnaz, to develop a strategy to build the female management capacity at the social enterprise level, to expand the measurement of gender metrics on the exchange, and to explore the need and viability of investing with a gender lens.
