Event description

Description

Career and family are some of the biggest priorities in our lives, if you don't have a family yet, you may be considering it within the next few years. Does the idea of balancing both seem impossible? Are you trying to work as hard as you can to get ahead before having children (the "Lean In" approach) or trying to establish yourself in a career that's flexible, or even work for yourself, so that you have control over when and how you work when you decide to have kids? There are so many opinions readily available about which is better, but the decision is ultimately very personal and very dependent on your situation. Let's have a conversation about how we can better frame the "problem" of how to optimize a career we enjoy and a family we love so we can be more confident in our own decisions and more supportive of the women around us. It will be a good time to appreciate the uniqueness of each of our contexts and priorities, while also learning from each other.

WoCo Advisory Board member Angela Styczynski Snyder will be co-hosting this conversation. Angela is the Senior Director of Research at Atirix Medical Systems where she has been for the past five years. She has her PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Minnesota. She is the mom of two kids, ages 4 and 1.

Are you new to WoCo? If so, it might be helpful to frame up the style of our events for you. We keep them intentionally small to allow for sharing, discussion and getting to know each other. We think there's a greater likelihood that you'll learn more and get inspired when you can engage with eachother in this way. You can expect this to feel a little bit like a book club with no book.
