    Dear all,


    I am delighted to announce the UN PRI Academic Seminar Series. This multidisciplinary virtual seminar series will feature ESG thought leaders and is open to academics, investors, students, and others. The aim of this seminar series is threefold:

    • To give thought leaders in responsible investing the opportunity to present their work and obtain valuable feedback
    • To provide an opportunity to junior scholars to network with the speaker and obtain career advice
    • To be more inclusive and strengthen our global PRI Academic Network community throughout the year

    Each session will consist of two parts:

    • Part 1: Presentation (60min interactive seminar) – open to all
    • Part 2: Network opportunity and career advice for junior scholars with speaker (30min) – open to PhD students and junior faculty

    Below is the seminar schedule for the AY2020/21:


    Nov 6: Luigi Zingales (U Chicago)
