Sunday, October 28: "Transferable Skills: What drug dealers and single heads of household know that many MBA graduates don't."

On October 28, we will be cataloging thefinancial tools we use, the ones we need to learn, and examine personal financial literacy in the larger context of business literacy and then we will be using business literacy as a tool for local social justice efforts.

If you did not attend the first nor second parts of Petra Perkins' workshops "God or Mammon:  Money, Core Values, and the Entrepreneurial Life" & "Social Capital: What is it? Why is it hard to measure? Why is it more important than financial capital (especially for women and minorities)?", your attendance is still welcomed.  

Please come and use the prompt below to create a story map to bring with you to this final meeting. 

Create a list (or lists) of words, phrases, or sentences that describe the experiences, culture, and relationships that first formed your attitudes about money and work. 

All ages are welcome!
