PIN'S Executive Team Members Speak at 30th Annual SRI Conference
Largest Annual Meeting of Sustainable and Impact Investors Welcomes Former NFL Player Warrick Dunn, and Former NBA Player/NBA Players Association President Antonio Davis
COLORADO SPRINGS (October 09, 2019) – The SRI Conference announced today that it will host a panel of retired professional athletes who are now impact investors and philanthropists. Among those scheduled to appear are former National Football League (NFL) running back and Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Warrick Dunn and retired National Basketball Association (NBA) player Antonio Davis, who also served as president of the NBA Players Association (NBAPA).
Dunn and Davis will participate in a panel session along with fellow athletes Devean George, Sheryl Grant, and Derrick Morgan on the conference’s main stage at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Thursday, November 14, 2019.
Titled: The Next Wave of Impact – The Professional Athlete, the session will give panelists the opportunity to share what inspired them to become impact investors and philanthropists, what issues they focus on and why, as well as successes and challenges they face as they work to address pressing societal, economic, and environmental challenges.
Warrick Dunn played five seasons with the Buccaneers, six seasons with the Falcons, and then a final year in Tampa Bay. In December 2009, Dunn purchased a minority ownership position in the Falcons.
Dunn is the head of Warrick Dunn Charities, which includes Homes for the Holidays and three additional programs: Count on Your Future, Sculpt, and Hearts for Community Service Scholarships. Together, the four programs are dedicated to strengthening and transforming communities by combating poverty, hunger, and improving the quality of lives for families. Homes for the Holidays has furnished 169 homes, provided over $800,000 in down-payment assistance, and served over 457 single parents and children.
Antonio Davis played for the Indiana Pacers, Toronto Raptors, Chicago Bulls and the New York Knicks. He also served as president of the National Basketball Players Association in 2005.
Davis is managing partner of PIN – the Playbook Investors Network.
