A Profit of Social Impact

Susan Hammel is a uniter of two worlds- the world of finance and the world of social impact. She is an impact investing advisor and a capital-raising consultant whose mission is to change the way people think about the relationship between money and social impact. From community organizing to Wall Street to public policy to consulting, Susan’s journey has included a wide variety of experiences and perspectives that have much to teach about how to move forward in effectively creating a more human and equitable world. Here we discuss:

-Paul Wellstone, his way of making change, and his influence on Susan’s path
