Modern life presents many challenges for women. Along with pressure to succeed in career, many face huge expectations in their home life too. Striving to balance these demands can make a woman feel stuck, even while she knows she’s capable of so much more. We’re so busy working hard, we rarely have time to align our work priorities, let alone our life priorities. In 2016, Community Business organised a DIAN professional development series workshop on how leading organisations are redefining the way they look at work to optimise the happiness, health and engagement of their employees. Back by popular demand, Em Roblin, the founder of Circles2, a firm that designs and delivers programs to increase the individual and organisational impacts of women, will shift the focus to the individual, to what you can do to feel more in control of your life balance. Come prepared to reflect and share, not only about your work, but about your life. Because after all, life includes work. And when you apply the right attitude and an honest effort across all of the things important to you, your career will thrive too.
