New Reality, New Stresses, New Opportunities for Working Parents


Friday, September 24
12:00 – 1:00 P.M. ET


Working parents are a hugely valued employee group in our agencies. In fact, significant research confirms that parenthood develops skills that are critical for success in the modern workplace. However, working parents are facing unique challenges at this moment in history. Having survived lockdown, childcare issues and remote learning trials and tribulations, our working parents are facing new challenges this fall — whether required to be in the office, working remotely but on call for client needs, or awaiting decisions. And then there’s the anxiety of back to school…

Join us for an hour-long discussion of how parenthood can unlock career critical skills, and how parents and employers can make life less stressful and more successful during this prolonged pandemic. Amy Henderson, CEO & Co-Founder of TendLab, will moderate a panel of parents who work at Member firms to uncover challenges and practical solutions.
