Jean Rogers, PhD, PE
If change is inevitable, the capacity to adapt is essential. Jean Rogers helps individuals, organizations, and entire markets get ahead of the biggest change affecting the capital markets since modern portfolio theory—sustainable capitalism. As the founder of SASB and one of the 20 most Influential People in Sustainable Investing (Barron’s, 2018) Dr. Rogers brought the essential principle of materiality to bear on sustainability issues industry by industry, establishing the link between transparency and performance to unlock financial value. With a particular focus on the interconnectedness of capital markets and social value, Rogers applies systems thinking and an entrepreneurial spirit to help corporations, investors, policymakers, philanthropists, students, and others as they look to address 21st century sustainability challenges with appropriately innovative market solutions.
