Live Twitter Q&A with economist Linda Scott

Linda Scott is well placed to answer questions on inclusion, gender lens investing and making the economy work for everyone

ESG Clarity is delighted to announce its next expert for the live Twitter Q&A series.

Linda Scott, Emeritus DP World Professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the University of Oxford, and author of the Double X Economy, will be tuning into Twitter on Thursday 18 February at 15.00 GMT to answer questions from ESG Clarity readers.

Scott founded the Global Business Coalition for Women’s Economic Empowerment as well as the DoubleXEconomy LLC, a consulting firm specialising in women’s economic empowerment. She sits on several committees and councils surrounding women’s economic empowerment, and led a global initiative to put women’s financial inclusion on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals—the #DoubleXPetition.

She is therefore well-placed to answer questions on:

  • Women’s inclusion in asset management and barriers to success
  • Making the economy work for everyone
  • Investing with a gender lens

The live Q&A is a new initiative from ESG Clarity to boost interaction between the in-house team and our readers, as well as connect them with ESG investing experts. In the first edition, readers posted their questions to PRI CEO Fiona Reynolds – you can view the full Q&A here, and in its second to Harvard Business School lecturer Professor Vikram S. Gandhi.

ESG Clarity invites you to submit your questions to Professor Scott by Tweeting a post including your question, our handle @ESGClarity and the hashtag #AskProfessorScott. This can done either before the 18 February or on the day at 15.00 GMT.

Alternatively, readers can submit questions to Natalie.kenway@lastwordmedia.com and natasha.turner@lastwordmedia.com with #AskProfessorScott in the subject line.

Don’t forget to follow @ESGClarity!
