What’s Your Worth: The Art of Advocating for Ourselves
If you’re like us, you know that it can be easy to go to bat for someone else or to negotiate on their behalf. But why is it so difficult to negotiate for ourselves? At this Circle, we explore how to identify our own side of the equation: what is my goal, what are my needs, what do I want from the other side? And we take time to acknowledge our “net worth” beyond the numbers – that is, everything that we bring to the table, even if it can’t be quantified in dollars and cents.
What is a Conversation Circle?
Our Conversation Circles create opportunities for women to have authentic conversations about the important aspects of personal finance beyond the numbers. These conversations foster a deeper knowledge and understanding which enables participants to align their financial decisions with their values. What we have seen is that when our money and values are in alignment, we are happier, more conscious of, and more engaged with our own financial management.
Our Conversation Circles are structured and facilitated to provide time for personal reflection and interpersonal connection and include content and exercises that lead to concrete action steps. Each woman participates based on her own level of comfort and desire, and some choose to sit and listen.We begin by discussing the principles, practices and agreements that determine how the circle functions. These tenets provide the framework that allows each woman to feel safe sharing her experience: the circle is conscientiously set up to be a judgment-free space. The conversation and the structure of the session are guided by a specific topic. You can expect specific exercises and prompting questions so that each woman, introvert and extrovert alike, may find an entry point if she wishes.During the two hour circle, the activities vary. We may break into pairs or do a writing exercise, and also have time to share as a whole group. Throughout the event, we provide background information and empirical research on the topic to enrich the discussion and put it into a broader context.
