BOSTON, MA, April 12, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) Boston Chapter and Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough's WOGO group (Women on the Go) hosts a professional women's networking event at the Kimball Office Boston Showroom with guest speaker Liz O'Donnell, Author of the Mogul, Mom & Maid:The Balancing Act of the Modern Woman and founder of Hello Ladies, one of the "top 100 websites for Women", according to Forbes.
Much has been written about women and the workforce, but the headlines and the statistics don't tell the whole story. More and more women today are breadwinners, and these breadwinners are struggling, caught in a perfect storm of male-dominated culture at work, traditional social norms at home, and outdated school schedules that don't gel with work schedules. Mogul, Mom, & Maid:The Balancing Act of the Modern Woman takes an honest look at how women are balancing home life and career. Liz O'Donnell will examine the choices breadwinners are making, the options they have, and the impact these decisions make. Liz will also share practical advice for what women, their spouses, and their employers can do so that women can thrive at work and at home -from negotiating tips, to steps for creating a true workflex culture.
Join us for an evening of professional networking, cheese delicacies, wine cheer, and Liz O'Donnell's practical advice and book signing.
Where: Kimball Office Showroom, 30 Federal Street, 2nd Floor, Boston
When: April 29th from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
