The following panel was given at the 10th annual conference of International Funders for Indigenous People. internationalfunders.org
Corporate abuse of Indigenous Peoples‘ rights, lands and resources is a top concern within the IFIP community. But how many foundations are practicing shareholder activism, socially responsible investing and proxy voting to protect Indigenous Peoples rights and the environment?
Learn how funders can use their power as investors to collaborate with Native tribes and Nations, NGOs, and socially responsible investors to influence corporate policies and avoid investments in companies that harm Indigenous Peoples. Examples include using UNDRIP as a new framework for collaborative partnerships to promote sustainability; using, shareholder advocacy in support of Indigenous Peoples' right to free prior and informed consent; addressing extractive industries‘ impacts on Native peoples; and countering offensive images and stereotypes.
