About the Webinar

Careers don’t follow timelines. They’re full of false starts, forks, zigzags. Life comes at you—starting a family, a layoff, partners getting jobs in new cities, all the unexpected complications—and your career follows where you lead.

That might mean a long career gap or a sudden transition to a new industry. It might mean you need a side hustle. It might mean you don’t know what you need. The point is: the best careers fit into your life and your priorities and they’re flexible enough to accommodate all life’s changes, both expected and unexpected.

In this webinar, we’re delving into building a career around your needs, not the other way around. We’re chatting with guests from InHerSight, a company reviews site specifically for women, and Modern Fertility, a tech startup that allows women to test their fertility from the privacy of home.

You’ll Learn

  • How to find a company that respects your need for flexibility
  • Some of the best workplaces and policies for women and working moms
  • Tips for balancing family and work without sacrificing your career growth (straight from women entrepreneurs who do it!)
  • How to overcome resume gaps and the motherhood penalty
  • How to plan goals that actually fit your work and life
