Conversations about managing work and life often lead many working parents to assume there is one way or even a best way to navigate work and life. The reality is women (and men) are integrating work/life in radically different ways based on their professional and personal goals and their unique life circumstances.

Join D’Amore-McKim Professor Jamie Ladge and her co-author Babson College Professor Danna Greenberg as they explain why this work/life myth persists. They’ll introduce varied strategies for successfully navigating work and family through a range of career and personal transitions, some of which they discuss in their recent book, Maternal Optimism: Forging Positive Paths through Work and Motherhood. They will also highlight the diverse approaches working parents can take in forging their own positive path through work/life.

This event is a part of the D’Amore-McKim School of Business’s Lunch & Learn Series hosted by the Dunton Family Dean’s Office. At this time, the Lunch & Learn series is only open to our internal community.
