Working Caregivers Roundtable: Career Change After a Career Break


Have you taken a career break to care for others? Is it time to return to your career? Join us to talk about the steps involved in this transition. Hosted by working parent consultant Lisa Durante.

Thu, May 6, 2021 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

This week's topic: Return to your career after a caregiving break

You've taken time out of your career to care for your loved ones. No matter how long your break has been, we'll share the steps you can begin to take to think through your career goals and the next steps you can take to work toward it.

We'll be joined by Kavitha Govindarajulu, Principal Software Engineering Lead at Microsoft who'll share more about the path to return to her career in technology. 

Join us to hear insights from Kavitha and share questions or concerns you have about your own career return.  

This event is open to all working parents and caregivers. You are free to join this Zoom meeting however you feel most comfortable - with the cameras on or off.

We only ask that you come ready to create a supportive and interactive experience. You can do this by coming with something to give (insights, experiences) or something to ask (questions, support).

The Working Caregivers Roundtable meets twice monthly to connect with other working parents and caregivers through structured conversations, rotating special guests and topics.

Session Agenda:

  • 1:00 - 1:10: Welcome & Introductions
  • 1:10 - 1:40: Facilitated discussion (main room or across breakout rooms)
  • 1:40 - 1:55: Crowdsourcing Solutions
