Family Values at Work? F*ck Yes.

Work life balance is not a thing. Work is a place where it’s not hard to throw down a 50, 60, 70 hour week, and it demands excellence in every element executed regardless of the time commitment to get there.

You can't get far these days without reading about work life balance or how people, women specifically, "can't have it all." You need a work family. Sure, it can be hard, but it can also be amazing. It means that accomplishments of coworkers become celebrations for friends. Yes, it means someone will probably see you ugly cry.

This session will focus on how to bring family values into your workplace for better life balance.
