The Murninghan Post is a platform for educating, engaging, and empowering concerned citizens about how to bridge the equity gap by using the tools of the Internet and capital markets to fix the abuses of capital markets. The aim is bold but clear: advance racial and economic justice via a range of transparent and accountable investment strategies that are rooted in civic moral values.
At a time when public mistrust of capitalism is at an all-time high, we work to cultivate an ethic of civic obligation — and introduce the interrelated concepts of “civic fiduciary” and “civic financial literacy” — that, in the process, restores voice and agency to concerned citizens while assisting in the transition to a prosperous, sustainable, and just world.

A primary feature of MurnPost involves regular posts that distill, analyze, and aggregate the most salient developments on corporate and investor accountability issues, within the overlapping environmental, social, and governance (ESG) domains. We track the following areas:
- Trends in corporate and investor reporting;
- Digital tools for stakeholder engagement;
- Corporate and investor governance and stewardship;
- Sustainability ratings;
- Innovations in climate policy and finance;
- Notable people who are working in these realms; and
- Hot topics and horizon issues that warrant our attention.
In addition, we will be introducing mechanisms for collaborative education and engagement on topics relevant to the larger mission of sustainable prosperity and justice. Because the topics we cover have profound public significance, our strategic goal is to demystify and inspire in ways that are constructive and inclusive.
In the near future, we will be hosting special projects on topics related to fixing inequality and promoting sustainable prosperity and justice that enable purposeful action from users and readers.
The idea for The Murninghan Post was conceived by Bob Massie, a pioneer in the field of corporate sustainability and accountability. MurnPost was further developed with Bill Baue, a longtime practitioner in the CSR ecosystem; it also was supported by Ariane Van Buren, an expert in sustainability and stakeholder engagement, and Sonia Hamel, a leader in climate and clean energy policy. They wanted to honor Marcy Murninghan’s deep experience and unique ability to spot trends, track multiple strains of interrelated developments, and synthesize diverse ideas.
