RUN, HIDE, FIGHT - Active Shooter Training
This workshop provides information on surviving an active shooter incident. "Shots Fired!" is the last thing you expect to hear in the workplace or at school. Unfortunately, the possibility of this violent event taking place in your community has become a reality that employees and students have to deal with.

Responsible Investing: Promoting Financial and Non-Financial Value Creation
Investors adopt responsible investment principles for different reasons and sometimes seek to meet several goals simultaneously. Some investors would like to see their beliefs reflected in their investment portfolios; this approach is often referred to as values-based investing. Others are motivated by financial goals and seek the enhanced returns that they think can be achieved. Still others are driven by economic goals and believe that addressing sustainability megatrends will benefit the economy overall. The practice of responsible investment has been gradually evolving for decades and in recent years, has been refined with new approaches. Join TIAA for a discussion on Responsible Investing.
