Could you benefit from some advice and connections in 2019? If so, we hope you will join our Ring of Reciprocity on March 14th! Wharton alumni will gather and share specific professional or personal requests and other participating alumni will share their ideas and resources. To ensure participants have enough time, this event will be capped at 15, so register today to reserve your seat in the Ring.
What is a Ring of Reciprocity?
The Reciprocity Ring, which harnesses the power of givers to help advance and even grant requests, is a concept popularized in Adam M. Grant's bestselling book Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success. Adam is the Wharton School’s youngest tenured professor and has been recognized as Wharton's top-rated professor for five straight years. https://giveandtakeinc.com/reciprocity-ring/ 
How will the Ring work?
Introductions and Requests for Expertise/Connections
We’ll mingle from 6:00 - 6:30ish and then go around the Ring to individually introduce ourselves and our requests. Research indicates that giving happens most often in response to a direct request for help. Each participant is invited to share a meaningful request, whether personal or professional. Changing careers? Need advice re a business opportunity/problem? Want to find  a way to help human trafficking survivors in our city? Tracking down an obscure piece of technology?  Survival tips for life with newborn twins and a toddler? Need a specific connection (s) for your business? 

Offers of Connections & Help
Once all of the requests are known, participants are invited to offer suggestions, introductions, or other forms of assistance in response to the requests. It will be surprising and inspiring to see the generosity of knowledge and networks in action! Offers of help, expertise, connections, etc. will be captured on post-it notes by alumni offering assistance which will then be attached to appropriate poster boards of alumnae who need the info.

Social time to make connections and meet in person
We’ll save time at the end of the evening to allow participants to meet new friends and talk at greater length. Requestors will likely be eager to talk more with those who offered assistance. This event will yield a trove of help and new connections in the Wharton community.
