Are you feeling stressed at work and home because you’re a hard-working mother with kids? Welcome to a crowded club! For the first time in American history, a significant number of mothers are heading major corporations and have made gains throughout executive suites. Yet these “Power Moms” still struggle to balance their management responsibilities while raising children. But don’t despair! Without drowning in working mother guilt, you can flourish on both fronts in the post-pandemic world. In this enlightening webinar, Joann S. Lublin, author, and award-winning journalist will offer various coping tactics based on her book, Power Moms: How Executive Mothers Navigate Work and Life

About the author: Joann S. Lublin, author of one of 2021’s best books for working mothers, raised two children while rising to management news editor of the Wall Street Journal. She shared its 2003 Pulitzer Prize, inaugurated its career advice column, and kept writing her column until 2020. She also blazed trails—as one of the first Wall Street Journal reporters to take maternity leave and resume work. In 2018, she won the highest accolade in business journalism, the Gerald Loeb Lifetime Achievement Award. She remains a regular WSJ contributor.
