Flexperience & UC Hastings Law School is presenting an interesting program on October 14th called "Getting to 50/50: How Working Couples Can Have It All By Sharing It All".
Parents Place in Palo Alto is also sponsoring a talk (details at the bottom) - on October 13th.
Here are details for the San Francisco one:
Author Meers will discuss "Getting to 50/50" her new book co-authored with Joanna Strober.
According to Flexperience, "after interviewing hundreds of of parents and employers, surveying more than a thousand working mothers, and combing through the latest government and social science research, the authors have discovered that kids, husbands, and wives all reap huge benefits when couples commit to share equally as breadwinners and caregivers. Mothers work without guilt, fathers bond with their kids, and children blossom with the attention of two involved parents.
The starting point? An attitude shift that puts you on the road to 50/50-plus the positive step-by-step advice in this book. Here are real-world solutions for parents who want to get ahead in their careers and still get to their children's soccer games; strategies for working mothers facing gender bias in the workplace; advice to fathers new to the homefront; and tips for finding 50/50 solutions to deal with issues of money, time, and much more."
