Cocktails & Conversations: Balancing Work & Family

March 8, 2016
Event location: 

The New York Times

​Pre-registration has closed. On-site registration will be available. 

Join us for a panel discussion on "Balancing Work & Family" — managing childcare or taking care of aging parents, while maintaining your career. We will discuss your rights when you need a time-out from work, help you navigate the potential perils of time off (both short-term and longer-term), how to ask for and get the help you need and how to make technology work for you. 

You may be interested in reading a transcript of a past NYWICI Twitter Chat on the same topic: Work/Life Balance, our interview with one of the panelists, Dr. Neha Sangwan, as well as our interview with the moderator, Valerie M. Grubb.
