I get it: you want to put aside money for your future, without contributing to the demise of that future. Is it possible - if so, how?
The answer isn't a simple yes or no, but there ARE more-values-aligned options for your money, and ways you can think about your investments and other spending that can help you take the actions you mean to.
This workshop on Exploring Ethical Investing will take you about 90 minutes to two hours to work through, and you'll learn:
- Better investing options - and how you can move forward deciding on one: you don’t need to get overwhelmed to implement them! There's a 25 minute video + a summary sheet detailing your options.
- This workshop helps you create personal values guidelines so that making those decisions is easier, faster, and more in line with what is meaningful to you. There are two sets of videos + exercises to ground and guide you alongside real talk and bubble bursting honest assessments of what's "ethical" in an investing context.
- + an investing 101 primer, a how-to invest section, and resources for researching investments and taking your next steps.
You get short videos + all the content in a PDF, a worksheet, AND an investing options summary sheet.
