Saturday in Vienna: Advice for work-life balance

Filed Under:

DCB will be taking "vacation" (if you call flying cross-country with a newborn and 4-year-old a holiday) tomorrow through June 22... but before signing off, I want to share an opportunity many of you will be interested in:

The Women's Center in Vienna, VA is hosting "Flexible Work Schedules: Can They Work for You?" this Saturday, June 14 from 2 to 4 p.m., with presenter Mary Ellen Slayter, Washington Post "Career Track" columnist.

Here's a blurb on what to expect:
"For those who struggle to balance the demands of family and work life, a more flexible schedule often seems like the perfect solution. This workshop will explain how to successfully negotiate an alternative work schedule and make it work to benefit you and your employer. Issues addressed include: figuring out what type of alternative arrangement you need, such as a compressed week, flex hours, or full-time or part-time telecommuting. We will also discuss how to craft your request, helping you show how the alternative arrangement will benefit your employer. Finally, we'll talk about how to keep yourself in the work "loop" when you are not there."

Cost is $45, or $35 if you're a Women's Center member-donor. To register, call 703.281.2657 or click here.

The DCB blog will return on Monday, June 23. In the meantime, Happy Father's Day to you and yours!
