When: August 24th, 3:30 pm

The challenge for working parents (especially working mothers) is the expectation to work as if they don’t have children and to parent as if they don’t work. They are often faced with the pressure of having to prove themselves to managers, teams and even to themselves.  And meanwhile, at home, they are adjusting to significant additional responsibilities.  This workshop will discuss why the idea of balance often puts more pressure on working parents, steps on how to re-establish your boundaries and adjust to your new identity as a working parent.
