Many women feel pressured to conform to just one form of ambition—the race to the top—which leaves many feeling out of step and excluded. When leadership training is all about advancement and you’re struggling to blend work and life, what do you do? If you’ve been out of the workforce for many years and you don’t want to return to the grind you left behind, what are your more flexible professional options? In this interactive discussion, Kathryn Sollmann will discuss why women need to speak up and be authentic about the work that fits their own lives and unapologetically lean “in between” during periods of heavy caregiving. You’ll learn about the six different kinds of flexwork—what flexwork is, where you’ll find it, the way it’s compensated and how to ask for it in a current job. At a time when women feel like they’re letting down the sisterhood if they aren’t doing everything they can to lead corporations, small businesses that can be exponentially scaled and sold, non-profit organizations or the country, we’ll take a collective deep breath, discuss how to exert your own brand of ambition of success, stay on track for long-term financial security and embrace the motto that up is not the only way forward for women.
