Inspired by Susie Orman Schnall's new novel, The Balance Project, please join us for a candid, thought provoking discussion on the challenges and rewards of finding a lasting work-life balance, despite demanding professional careers.

The event will address a series of questions: 

- Is work-life balance an illusion? What does it actually mean?

- What adjustments may you need to make to achieve greater balance?

- What role do colleagues or significant others play in helping you achieve balance?

- Is “having it all” overrated?

- Which aspects of "balance" are the most challenging and what to do about it?

To tackle these questions and others, we have assembled a talented panel of women professionals representing a range of viewpoints, experiences and backgrounds.

Be part of this important conversation, share your perspectives, enjoy a cocktail, and receive a copy of The Balance Project.
