Staying Sane While Sharing Space – Innovate Inclusion

Staying Sane While Sharing Space

You’re about to give a presentation during an important conference call… but your kids are in the middle of a fight. Or your partner’s on back-to-back calls right next to you. Or the baby won’t stop crying. With many teams working remotely right now, and so many kids held home from school and daycare, this might be your daily life. So how do you deal with competing work-life priorities?

That’s what this webinar’s all about. We’ve asked powerful leaders (and working moms) to share their struggles and solutions on staying balanced – and staying sane – to help you make it work, too. Register today to save your spot. It’s free!
