Gender Talk: Personal Finance & Money
January 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
In the first Gender Talk of the winter semester, we will be exploring the ways that our gender identities affect our relationship with money. While money can be a sensitive or awkward topic for some, it plays an important role in everyone’s life, especially trans and nonbinary folks’, who may face additional barriers to obtaining financial literacy and stability. We will discuss the taboos of talking about money, why those taboos exist, as well as the ways that our upbringing and way of life influence the way we view and interact with money.
– What is financial literacy, and how can we obtain it?
– How does our personal upbringing and social position influence the choices and financial decisions we make?
– What are some added expenses of being trans or nonbinary, and how do these affect the way we interact with finance?
LOCATION: 21 Sussex Avenue, Room 503
Gender Talk is a monthly conversation café for trans+ students at U of T. We welcome all members of U of T who identify as trans, transgender, non-binary, genderqueer, or who are questioning their gender identity to come together to talk about the issues you want to talk about. Connect with other students and guest facilitators as we share our thoughts, experiences and questions.
This is an open drop-in conversation café for anyone interested in attending. We encourage everyone to show up at 12:00 pm, if you can. At that time, the facilitator will introduce themselves and encourage everyone to share their name. After that, the facilitator will guide us in a conversation, though the direction really depends on the people present. The conversation wraps up at 1:30 pm, but students are encouraged to remain in the lounge to hang out, chat informally and enjoy the remaining snacks.
