Many women find balancing the demands of work and home life difficult due to traditional, arguably archaic, perspectives on women’s roles. The recent lockdown period, where many have been forced to work from home while home schooling, caring for relatives and denied access to the usual support networks because of the pandemic has exacerbated this.

Event details

In May, the Guardian reported that the lockdown has not only reinforced gender inequalities but, in some cases, made them worse. 

So how do we overcome this? As the economy looks towards recovery and many of us seek to use the enforced pause of lockdown to evaluate our work and our homelife, what can we learn from this time and move forward in a positive and fair way?

Join us on for a focused discussion on this issue and stay on for networking with other women from across the area. Our panel will discuss a range of factors around work/life balance and will share their experiences and recommendations in a safe (virtual) space. Our panel includes:

  • Naomi Buffery - Anxiety & Confidence Coach
  • Nicky Dewhirst-Vickers - Personal Development and Performance Coach
  • Meryl Shirley – Founder, Women Growing A Business
  • Samantha White - CEO, My Credit Controllers
