Women-led.
Impact leading.

The proficiency to help create prosperity for people, planet, and portfolios.

The right leadership can make a difference–
especially to investors who are looking to do just that.

Impact investment leaders Amy Domini and Carole Laible are on a mission to create a down-to-earth investment community that drives positive social, environmental, and financial outcomes.

Over 20 years ago, Amy Domini didn’t just create the company; she helped establish the industry. Together with Carole Laible, Amy has been on a mission to prove that what’s good for people and planet is also good for business and attractive to investors.

Amy and Carole’s pioneering partnership has influenced everything from the fossil fuel and weapon divestment movement to the widespread use of sustainability reports from the world largest corporations. For the entire Domini team—and for all of us who share their passion for making the world a better place—impact investing isn’t a trend; it’s a tradition.

Ms. Domini serves as a voting member of Domini’s Impact Review Committee and Standards Committee. She also serves as co-Portfolio Manager for the Domini Impact Equity Fund, Domini International Opportunities Fund, and Domini Sustainable Solutions Fund.
