STAMFORD, Conn. -- The issue of how women can achieve a work-life balance will be addressed Thursday, May 12, at "Make Work Fit Life" at the Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa.
Women, especially mothers, struggle with balancing work and their busy lives. Some are afraid to ask their boss for flexibility or don't sell it in the right way.
The event's objective is to show women that there are many ways to work — far beyond the traditional, rigid corporate structure.
"Make Work Fit Life" aims to be a comprehensive road map to finding flexible employment or entrepreneurial ventures that fit a full and busy life.
The event’s founder, Kathryn Sollmann, has created this event for highly educated (current and returning) professional women how to find flexibility in the workplace.
There will be speakers from Ernst & Young, Fidelity Investments, Cigna, Wells Fargo Advisors and more.
The event will include discussions on how to make a professional pitch for flexibility in your current job, how to return to a flexible job in the workforce after time out with family, and how to find flexibility through a wide range of entrepreneurial ventures.
The event is from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Stamford Marriott, 243 Tresser Blvd., Stamford.
