The New Narrative is currently soliciting speakers for our next major event on the theme of Work/Money. If you have a story to share, we’d love to hear from you. We want to explore this theme from the perspective of Power, Identity, and Perception.
What mindsets guide us when it comes to work and money? Do these mindsets actually serve us? What happens when these mindsets are challenged? The third sub themes we want to explore for the New Narrative event on Work/Money is Perception.
Who we are and how we appear in the world can greatly influence the opportunities for work and money that are available to us. What we do for a living and how much money we make can also influence how the world perceives us and what we think of ourselves. The second of three sub themes we want to explore for the New Narrative event on the theme of Work/Money is Identity. What story ideas do you have for this sub theme?
There’s an obvious power dynamic involved with work and money in our world. They exist as omnipresent institutions in our thoughts and daily endeavors. No matter how much we try, it’s nearly impossible to go more than a couple minutes without thinking about both. We’re interested to hear your story ideas that could work for the Work/Money/Power theme of our upcoming event.
We’re getting to work on the next major event of the New Narrative and are currently looking for speakers. The theme is going to be Work/Money. If you have any thoughts or leads on potential speakers for this theme we’d love to hear from you. Perhaps you have a story to share too!
