Lean In or Can’t Have it All: where does your career fit?

Ima Kadima, Women In Wireless and Digital Eve Israel are proud to present our first joint event:

There are two books leading the conversation about women in the workplace: Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg, who argues that women need to push themselves more in the workplace to be heard and considered; and

Unfinished Business by Anne Marie Slaughter that urges us to reconsider whether women really can “have it all.”

We will hear from a panel of women who will present for three minutes each to explain where they see themselves on the spectrum of Leaning In, or Not Having it All. We will then open the floor to a general discussion of the challenges we face as professional moms and women, and share ideas about how we can take our careers to the next level.

30 NIS entry fee that can go towards your order at Tmol Shilshom.
