Produced by #bossbabesATX, SHE TALKS is an ongoing discussion-based personal and professional development series, tackling topics from finances to intersectional feminism.

On September 28 at REVELRY, we'll host the third and final session in our summer installation of SHE TALKS, exploring lifestyle design. 

Know your worth, then add tax. Our third and final session in this summer SHE TALKS series is all about boundaries and negotiation. How do we maintain discipline in our careers? How do we negotiate our time? How do we determine when it's time to reassess our strategy and invest in a new culture for ourselves?

Presented in partnership with AceableSHE TALKS: My Boundaries, My Balance will feature three panelists, chatting their holistic approach to "work/life balance" and boundaries, as well as a negotiation activity led by Tanya Tarr.

Hannah Black with Google
