Have you ever thought “I can’t really say this to my friend, because they wouldn’t be able to relate”?

If so, come join us for an interactive, honest and thought-provoking conversation about the realities of being a Next Gen. Beneath the wealth of opportunity also lie unique challenges that are important to notice and explore. Navigating power dynamics, family politics and the privilege that comes with this reality is not always straightforward.

Questions the evening will explore:

  • How do we get more comfortable sharing and exploring the tensions and dilemmas we experience as a Next Gen community?
  • How do we reframe what can feel like a burden into opportunity?
  • What does it take for us to have better quality conversations about the tricky stuff within our families and beyond?

This intimate group discussion is strictly limited and will be on a first-come-first-served basis.

Who should attend?
