Work-Life Balance: 2.0

June 6, 2018 | 9:35 AM
Co-Presented by:
 Elizabeth J. Cummings

Creating a balanced professional and personal life can be one of the toughest challenges lawyers face, both for in-house and outside counsel. It’s clear there is not a simple solution, or a one size fits all approach. This panel explores the realities women face as they build a fulfilling career while also financially and emotionally supporting themselves – and potentially their family. How to create some level of balance professionally and personally in a world where the workforce is continually asked to do and be more?

This panel will examine:

  • Work-life balance in 2018 – oxymoron or real possibility?
  • Crafting a game plan that works for your life and goals
  • Flexible work arrangements: career solution or dead end?
  • Managing key relationships: family, clients, boss, colleagues…
