Cohen to Present at 2018 HerTomorrow Conference
On September 7, 2018, Lauren Cohen will speak at a conference being held at Washington University entitled HerTomorrow – Women Thinking, Speaking, Leading. HerTomorrow is a national non-profit organization that assembles brilliant, powerful, compelling women for events to share their thoughts about their lives, the world, and the state of women, today and tomorrow.
PROGRAM: Why You Will Never Achieve ‘Work/Life Balance’
In her presentation, Lauren will discuss how the myth of “work/life balance” blocks women [and men] from achieving true happiness. This ever-elusive standard has women perpetually trying to calibrate their work commitments just right in an attempt to strike that perfect balance between work and life. But thinking about work and life as separate, mutually exclusive components is the first mistake. It’s ALL life. Most of us spend at least a third of our lives at work — for certain professions, far more. We must reframe the conversation in terms of ‘integration.’ Those set on separating work from life should reconsider whether they’re doing work they love enough to have in their lives. Likewise, those checking their lives at the workplace door should think about how much more value they could offer to their work and their workplace if they brought their full selves to work. The key to happiness is having an integrated vision for your life and career that you’ve written yourself and that is not defined by others’ version of success.
