Work Like A Mother

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

A working father might never be asked “How do you do it all?” but the majority of the 30 million working mothers will often hear that question. Becoming a mother provides invaluable skills to the workforce that cannot be taught in-depth with any formal education: conflict resolution, time management, organizational skills, communication, collaboration, supervising, reliability and grit. Our panelists have a variety of take-away examples of how they manage to get 28 hours of work done in a 24 hour period. 

*Due to venue capacity, we are seating at a first come, first served basis. Registration is required but does not guarantee entry.
