Winning the Bread and Baking it Too: The New Economics of Female Leadership

Wharton Webinar Series

This session will discuss the real economic forces that make it difficult for working women (especially moms) to feel like they can "have it all," using data from Professor Corinne Low's research. We'll talk about how women optimize in a world that just isn't set up to support the reality of household and market labor, the mistakes we sometimes make for love (of our families and our jobs), and what it would mean to stop gaslighting women that they can just work harder and instead start actually changing things.

This Wharton Webinar Series is powered by The Wharton Fund and is exclusively available to Wharton alumni with PennKey login credentials.

Date and Time:
Thursday, December 14, 2023
12:00 PM ET — 1:00 PM ET
