Chordata Cohort Application - 2023/24
The fourth Chordata Cohort will launch in Fall of 2023, with our first in-person retreat at the Watershed Center in Millerton, NY from Friday Sept. 29 - Monday Oct. 2, 2023. Our second retreat will take place in Hollister, California from Thursday March 21 - Sunday March 24, 2024. The deadline for applications is May 28, 2023. Please reach out to Kate with any questions at kate@chordatacapital.com.

The Chordata Cohort is a nine-month long program, with two 4-day in-person retreats. We work with individuals who have access to over $3 million and are excited about shifting at least $1 million to solidarity economy investments.* Cohort members are interested in understanding the history of the wealth they have access to now, and working towards reparations and repair. They crave rituals, personal practices, and concrete tools to shift their giving and investing into deeper alignment with their values, and are seeking community as they co-create strategies for wealth redistribution and transitioning their investments.

At our two in-person retreats we connect as a community and support each other as we dive deep into the work of moving money to support economic self-determination. Cohort members build skill sets for working together across difference and navigating power, race and class, and learn about different paths forward through storytelling, presentations and facilitated conversation. We'll learn by doing! Together, we will have the opportunity to explore the vulnerabilities and practice the tough conversations that come with making big changes to our investment strategies, and collaborate with financial activists on the leading edge of creating restorative and reparative investment vehicles. We'll also learn practices and rituals to connect the head and heart and help you make fully embodied decisions that you can feel good about!
