How to Parent and Work Without Losing Your.....Mind
Jen Aberle, Ph.D.,Kim Grubbs,Jen Johnson,Alexis Kanda-Olmstead
Inspired by the lived experiences of four working mothers on campus (faculty, administrative professional, and state classified), this session will explore the concept of balance by identifying key challenges and strategies to navigating working parenthood. Specifically, we will discuss self-advocacy at work and at home, negotiating work and childcare, leveraging support systems, and living our values as parents and professionals. This is intended to be an interactive session where both presenters and participants can share stories, laugh, and learn from each other. Join us as we create solidarity with other working parents who juggle life in two worlds, striving to be fully present in both.
Goals and Target Audience:
This session is intended for working parents at CSU. Goals include:
-Normalizing the working parent experience
-Identifying strategies for balance
-Creating community among working parents
