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 (PhD, MS Univ of Michigan / BA Harvard) is the Wharton School’s youngest tenured professor and has been recognized as Wharton's top-rated professor for five straight years.

How will it work?
Introductions and requests
We’ll start by individually introducing 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? 

Offer 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! We’ll facilitate this portion of the evening using post-it notes to capture offers of assistance.

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 – and vice versa! Each participant will be able to take the written offers of assistance that she receives home with her – yielding a trove of help and new connections in the CO Ivy Women community.
