Know Thyself: A Money Reflection Workshop

Session 1

English Building, EB 160

10:00 AM - 11:10 AM

Are you in control of your money, or does money control you?

For many people, money sparks overwhelming stress and anxiety, which is often rooted in financial illiteracy, strained relationships with money, and of course, a lack of money. This burden is especially heavy for marginalized groups, including people of color and immigrants, due to cultural and systemic challenges.

In this workshop, we’ll dig into your money scripts, your money habits, and your money mindset. You’ll be guided through Money Reflection Exercises geared towards non-judgmental self-awareness around your finances. You will develop your toolkit to foster a healthier relationship with money and achieve overall financial well-being.
