About This Workshop

An effective work-life blend involves being intentional about how you align your priorities.  Blending doesn’t mean you’ll be able to do everything. It’s the practice of more creatively and flexibly integrating the two prominent areas of your life so you can do more or do what you’re doing with less stress. One of the keys to creating an effective blend is finding ways to share household tasks harmoniously. Sound like two impossible dreams? Join us for an enlightening conversation about what it means to find your unique work-life blend and discover a new, highly effective approach to solving the persistent challenge of gender equity in household tasks. You’ll gain “Fair Play” tools to create a more balanced and harmonious partnership with less tension over daily life and more room for fun and fulfillment. 

If time allows, we will explore the ways these strategies can promote a supportive corporate culture that encourages equitable partnerships, work-life balance, and shared responsibility among employees

Please note: This workshop is open to all participants, regardless of your relationship status or gender identity. The content will focus primarily on addressing gender inequity with heterosexual partnerships. The content will also acknowledge and respect the diversity of relationships and family structures. Those in other kinds of relationships (including roommates, parents and adult children, colleagues, etc.) may benefit from learning how to better create a more explicitly defined and fair relationship.
