"Impact Shares, is launching the first ETF focused on women empowerment that will screen for sexual harassment. The fund will contain around 200 to 300 stocks and will track the Equileap North American Women’s Empowerment Index. The index applies 19 screening criteria, which cover gender balance in leadership and workforce, equal pay, flexible work options, safety at work and freedom from violence, abuse and sexual harassment."
[COMMENTARY] I suspect this will not be the only fund to advance the cause. We’ll probably hear from many ESG oriented funds and managers that they’ll similarly screen for sexual harassment issues in their stock analysis.
