Are you at the point in your career when it's becoming difficult to blend work and family--or you want more time to pursue both personal and professional interests? Often the work women want to leave behind is the all-consuming climb up the corporate ladder--which is only one very traditional way to work. As the workplace becomes more fluid, women have many flexible professional options they can dial up or down. But what are these new and emerging work structures and where can they be found? Which industries and employers are thinking most progressively? How do you know if you're more suited for an entrepreneurial venture? If you're inclined to step out and take time off, how do you stay marketable? Are there long-term financial security and opportunity costs as a result of a family hiatus or professional sabbatical? And how does it affect your professional growth and earning power if your resume is a diverse set of zigs and zags in and out of the workforce--rather than a straight and narrow path? Panelists who are helping women find work that fits their lives at every age and stage will give you the insights you need to make informed, empowering and fulfilling work+life decisions.
