Janine Firpo is a values-aligned investor, angel investor, and social innovator. In 2017 she left her 35-year career in technology and international development to focus on how women can create a more just and equitable society through their financial investments. In 2018 Janine launched Aligned Investors’ Circles to help women invest all their assets – from cash to public equities to private investments – in ways that align with their values. In partnership with financial experts, she is editing a book that will help readers transform their relationship with money and break taboos related to women and financial empowerment. Over ten years ago, Janine made a decision to invest all of her personal assets in alignment with her values. After retiring from an executive role at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Janine decided to work with other female leaders to bring their collective knowledge to a wider audience. Their joint goal is to catalyze a movement that builds women’s financial confidence, power, and values-alignment.
