Hey, y’all — Molly here. I had the pleasure of joining Gratz Park Private Wealth’s Women’s Worth Alliance networking event last month. It was an evening full of connection, support + sharing, all around one theme: money.
Did that word just make you wince? That’s not surprising.
Studies show that 80% of women investors avoid discussing money because they feel uncomfortable or the topic is too personal. The Women’s Worth Alliance aims to break down those walls + help women gain confidence on their financial journey.
What we tried:
The evening started with ~30 minutes of mingling for attendees to network, sip wine, and enjoy delicious hors d’oeuvres. Gratz Park Private Wealth President Sherry Holley welcomed us to the front room — which looks like the comfy living room of my dreams — where we heard from three different women who shared their money stories, discussing themes like:
- Bold decisions
- Grit + perseverance
- Servant’s attitude
What not to miss:
The sense of connection + support you feel. When the different guests shared their stories, you could sense the engagement and understanding of the group. It also provided a sense of empowerment to not be ashamed of your own money story, no matter what part of the journey you’re on.
What we’re still talking about:
Did we tell you that this opportunity for engagement is free? Yep, there is no cost to you, just a willingness to get comfortable meeting new people + gain confidence discussing money.
How you can experience this:
The group meets once a quarter, so just four times a year. Reach out to the team at Gratz Park Private Wealth to learn how to join.
