Wednesday, October 21, 2020 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM PDT


Are you navigating life as a dual-career couple juggling work and caring for your family? Or laying the groundwork for that phase of your life as you choose a partner, consider when to have kids, or wonder whether your current employer is where you can have it all? This workshop is for you.

Join us to learn how to successfully navigate the three transitions all dual-career couples face, see and share the emotional labor with our partners (especially before kids!), and advocate for the support we need from our workplaces. Meet and learn from other Ellevate SF members during break out room conversation, and head back into your life with optimism, new connections, and practical tools you can use.
