9:45-10:45am  When Superwoman’s Cape Gets Weary: How to Better Manage Work and Care

Balancing work and family can be challenging, and can be overwhelming for women who strive to do it all. Meeting the needs of our careers, our spouse and children, and even, the growing number who are caring for aging parents, this session will help us understand the role of the family caregiver to be there for those who need you, while also remembering to take care of yourself. Expert advice will be given on how to be an effective caregiver, “time-off” techniques” for all caregivers, and beating stress and depression to help achieve a better, and healthier lifestyle.

Then somewhere along the way, you discovered that the thrill is gone or that initial career choice may not be as appealing later in life. If you find yourself in this position, this session may be just what you need to help rekindle your passions and reinvent yourself on the path to a new and exciting career. This session will give you practical tools to help you set realistic and focused goals for a successful career transition or to advance in your present career.
