Register for this event


About Financing the Future

In the Financing the Future series, hosted in collaboration with The Cutler Center for Investments and Finance, we will explore the crucial role of capital in driving social progress.

How will we finance our future? What new financing mechanisms are being created? What role do large corporations, NGOs, government agencies, community foundations, family offices, philanthropists and investors play? What's working? What's needed?

Investing in social progress and managing societal dilemmas is complex and takes time. It requires a new understanding, new forms of collaborative relationships, innovative financing schemes, and the moral and financial courage to put capital where the highest ROI is recalibrated and recalculated to accelerate economic and social progress.

Zumba®Toning - For those who want to party, but put extra emphasis on toning and sculpting to define those muscles!  It works by utilizing the challenge of adding resistance by using Zumba®Toning Sticks or light weights, which helps you focus on specific muscle groups, so you (and your muscles) stay engaged!  By using lightweight maraca-like toning sticks or light weights, Zumba Toning enhances sense of rhythm and coordination, while toning target zones, including arms, core and lower body.
