There is no one size fits all definition of what it means to be a successful working parent. In this workshop we will discuss the different ways in which you can achieve your own version of "balance" as you strive to fulfill both your work and family responsibilities. And, we will encourage you to be open to redefining success as you navigate different stages of parenthood and your careers. 

During the workshop, we will: 
  • Reflect on your personal definition of what it means to be a successful working parent
  • Identify ways in which you can manage challenging conversations with managers and co-workers about what it means to be a working parent
  • Discuss the different ways in which your work and family roles can be in conflict
  • Explore the many ways you can create synergies between your work and family roles
  • Consider your preferences for separating and/or integrating work and family

The workshop is relevant to mothers and fathers; parents of all genders; parents with children of all ages.
