Work Life Balance

Wednesday, June 5, 2013

We all say we have work life balance, but what do we really mean? With communication technology pervasive in every aspect of our lives, it can be hard to make a black and white separation between the two.

Join Women in Technology International (WITI) and Women of AT&T for a panel presentation on Work Life Balance. How do we do it all? We will talk about symptoms of an "imbalance"; career options; and sticky, actionable strategies to invoke more long term balance in our lives. Realize, empathize and act to change with your peers!
