    Can We Really Have It All?

    A discussion about challenges unique to female professionals.

    May 9, 2019 at the Charleston Historic Courthouse

    This program will focus on how women perceive success in the workplace in 2019, the challenges that are unique to working women, whether or not the ever-elusive “work-life balance” is attainable, challenging traditional stereotypes, and the importance of self-care. The discussion will offer insight, advice and candid personal accounts, as the presenters invite an open discussion with the audience.
