November 11, 2021, Notre Dame, Indiana – Sister Corinne Florek, OP, was recently profiled in the Alumni section of the University of Notre Dame’s website as one who invested not for profits, but for economic justice and the common good. 

A 1980 graduate of Notre Dame’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) Program, Sister Corinne spent the next 40 years involved in community investment. She founded the Religious Communities Investment Fund (RCIF) and is a consultant for the Adrian Dominican Sisters’ Portfolio Advisory Board. Both organizations give low-interest loans to nonprofit organizations that serve communities of people in need. 

“This is not venture capital; this is common good capital,” Sister Corinne told Maura Sullivan Hill, author of the article, “Investing for the Common Good.” Read the entire article on Sister Corinne’s work for economic justice and the common good.

During the 30-minute program, Mission San Jose Dominican Sister Jeanne Harris, OP, outlines Sister Judy’s work to prevent gun violence through corporate responsibility campaigns with gun manufacturers. Most recently, Sister Judy led the efforts of 15 organizations in the Interfaith Center for Corporate Responsibility to persuade shareholders of Smith & Wesson to pass a resolution that the gun manufacturer adopt a comprehensive human rights policy in light of rising gun violence in the United States. They drew support from 43.9% of the shareholders - a much greater show of support than at earlier shareholder meetings.
