The Ellevate Conversation Circle: Let’s Get Curious! What’s Your Money Story?

It’s a source of stress, excitement, embarrassment, joy, shame, fear and anxiety. It can breed family tension, cause fights and ruin friendships. Or it can be how you express gratitude, support others, and create something meaningful. It can make you jealous of your peers (or your peers jealous of you). It may even be how you were taught to measure your success at work and in life.

We’re talking about money. And we all have complicated relationships with it. Our emotions and money are deeply interlinked, yet money is still a very taboo topic for many people. But how can we solve a problem if we don’t talk about it? How can you make very personal decisions —asking for a raise at work, buying your first home, lending money to family, you name it — without talking about it? How can you benefit from the collective financial wisdom of women who’ve already gone through what you’re going through, who understand how you feel and want to help …. if you don’t talk about it?

These are the questions and challenges we’ll be tackling at this Conversation Circle, What’s Your Money Story? We all have scripts that run in our heads, either consciously or unconsciously. At this Circle, we set aside our judgments and self-recriminations and examine the stories we tell ourselves about money. What’s working that we can enhance? What aspects of our stories are so frustrating or repetitive that they need a rewrite? We consider with unrestrained curiosity how our money narratives are helping and hindering us. This is an opportunity to have an authentic discussion about money — our fears, our successes, our memories, and the attitudes, behaviors and legacies we’ve adopted over the years. We won’t be talking about spreadsheets or investment strategies. Instead, the Circle is for learning from each other and from ourselves.

At this gathering, we will listen and provide each other support constructively and nonjudgmentally. We will sit in circle, a group of ~15 women talking about money and everything that goes with it.

During the two-hour event, we also participate in activities like writing exercises, breaking into pairs to share experiences, and sharing as a full group.
