Finding work-life effectiveness

FREE Live Panel Discussion in New York City

Women often face singular decisions that involve not only work and family, but also other areas such as career, education, volunteering, friends, and personal health and wellbeing— sometimes all at once, and often with different implications and weight at different stages of our lives.   If these choices need not be binary or conflicting, what does optimal work-life "effectiveness” look like for each individual? As we delve into this important question, our panel will share their experience and knowledge. Through our conversation, we hope that our guests will gain a better understanding of how to frame work-life effectiveness, and will be more aware of options and thought processes that can better inform our decisions.
