An Evening with Joann S. Lublin

Power Moms

Wednesday, February 17, 6 PM EST




A record number of American women are reaching the executive suite, and a significant proportion of women now running major U.S. corporations have children. Yet despite this tremendous progress, working mothers still face numerous challenges at work and home—struggles that the Covid-19 pandemic aggravated.

In Power Moms, Lublin explores:

  • How two different generations of women navigate the emotional and professional challenges involved in juggling their managerial careers and families
  • Innovative approaches for how companies can make work more workable for parents
  • How a severe health crisis can become a transformational turning point in your professional growth
  • The “work-life sway” and why it works better than the “work-life balance”
  • The power of paying it forward by raising feminist sons
  • The importance of turning off the always-on switch
