Event Description 

More and more women are balancing career demands with caring for aging parents. Whether living far away or nearby, in a care facility or in your home, the emotional, financial and physical stress of caring for an aging parent can take a toll on both work and home life. While many workplaces have policies and offer support for employees caring for young children, fewer are prepared to support those in the workforce caring for Mom, Dad or Aunt Alma. How do we meet the competing demands for our time, energy and attention? As leaders in our organizations, how do we support other professionals who are experiencing this challenge?

Discussion Leader:

  • Mindy Fetterman, former editor who covered this topic at USA Today and now writes about it for Kaiser Health News and AARP publications. Mindy will share some recent data on caregiving by professionals, which is increasingly becoming an issue for millennials in the workforce.

Light hors d’oeuvres, wine/beer and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided.
