Judges Needed for the 2023 LIFT Challenge


Do you want to be re-inspired and help student competitors from around the world hone their skills? We are seeking judges from various professions to debate the most innovative impact investment and blended finance solutions and determine which teams are rewarded during the upcoming virtual LIFT Challenge. This is a great opportunity to network with other professionals around the world and to meet our next generation of impact leaders.

ACES Roundtable: Carbon Removal


In March 2023, the Ackerman Center for Excellence in Sustainability will host the inaugural ACES Roundtable, where this year’s focus will be on carbon removal. This invitation-only event will provide a unique opportunity for leaders of carbon removal companies, pioneers in an industry that is essential to averting the worst effects of climate change, to convene in a pre-competitive, Chatham House Rules discussion forum.
