Part I of the webinar: “Motherhood Guilt or Job Dissatisfaction?” will…
• help you decide if your thoughts about leaving the workforce are your own, or are influenced by others.
• include a provocative discussion exploring whether motherhood “guilt” is well-founded orwhether you have unrealistic expectations for balancing work and life..

For many women, a large factor in the “stay or go” decision is whether an alternative work structure is even possible. Part II of the webinar will help you “Exhaust Your Flexible Work Options.” Too many women assume flexibility is not an option or leave after one casual “ask.” This webinar discussion will help you determine if your job is a candidate for full or partial telecommuting, and how to make a professional case for flexibility. Looking beyond your current job, you’ll also learn where to look for other, more flexible opportunities and if an entrepreneurial venture would fit your work and broader life styles.
