Want to hear about how to achieve work life balance? Would like to have a profile photo taken for your CV by a professional photographer for free? Interested in winning Google swags?
We are pleased to invite you to attend our joint event with Google Girl Geek Coffees and CIS Postgraduate Group. So bye to final exams and embrace the happy moment, it's a good time to relax and meet new friends. We are organizing a talk followed by a free photography session, games with Google swags as prizes and refreshments.
Title of this talk: Work-life balance: a myth or reality?
Lisa Annese, Diversity Council Australia CEO, said “[We] see more women working part time. It’s obviously not getting any easier to combine full time work with having children. Major barriers continue to be limited access to quality, well paid and flexible work, as well as a lack of affordable and flexible childcare.” While having children is one rationale for a part-time working arrangement, there are many other reasons why employees choose to work flexible hours and spend less time in the office. In her talk, Tatiana will discuss part-time vs full-time work, underemployment rate for women, issues arising when women return to work after having children, and jobs and careers that can encompass flexible working conditions. She will draw on the examples from her own experience and invite the audience to share their stories.
