Nearly half of parents say they’ve passed up a job because it conflicted with family obligations.  Join Rachel Schall Thomas (C'93), Founder & President of LeanIn.org, to learn strategies for collaborating with your partner and sharing responsibilities at home to carve out your desired amount of time for professional development.

Children should feel supported when they both lead and nurture, and this means pushing back against age-old expectations that women should be caring and men should be in charge.  Changing these stereotypes starts at home. When parents have 50/50 partnerships, children grow up with more egalitarian views and can envision more possibilities for themselves.  Telling children “You can do anything” is not nearly as effective as showing them they can!  By making small changes that create more equal homes, we can raise a generation of women and men who can be anything they want to be.

Rachel will explain how you can find equality at home, let go of the pressure to be perfect, and help your child defy stereotypes.
