In this virtual 7-session community of practice, you’ll learn more than how to secure the bag: you’ll learn how to use your money to build the world you want to live in. In each gathering, we’ll discuss how to use money — however much of it we have right now — as a tool for changemaking through our everyday practices, while also setting ourselves up to achieve our long-term personal, professional, and financial goals.
This community of practice is for you if:
- You are curious about how to use money for social change, no matter the amount - no finance background necessary!
- You want to explore money with a supportive community of your peers and a Visiting Expert
The commitment is:
- Seven virtual 90-minute sessions, roughly once a week beginning in January 2023. We ask that you keep your cameras on for these sessions.
Participants in this community of practice receive:
- $150 stipend
- A supportive community of your peers
- A chance to learn directly from our Visiting Expert (Finance and Investing) Eva Yazhari '06, who will facilitate the sessions
