Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Professional women struggle to balance their careers and their personal lives. Is it possible to have a balance between the two? What are the challenges and trade-offs? Managing the complex relationship between work and life is a task that all professionals face. However, gender, cultural, and economic factors can create unique challenges. This talk will address issues of work-life balance, and ask how women might begin to think about their personal challenges and strategize for solutions.
