Reception for Author Sharon Meers

Co-Author of “Getting to 50/50: How Working Couples Can Have It All by Sharing It All.”

Fri, September 25, 2009 | ACES Connector Lobby

4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

After extensive research, Meers and co-author Joanna Strober discovered that kids, husbands, and wives all reap huge benefits when couples commit to share equally as breadwinners and caregivers. Mothers work without guilt, fathers bond with their kids, and children blossom with the attention of two involved parents. The authors provide real-world solutions for parents who want to get ahead in their careers and still get to their children’s soccer games; strategies for working mothers facing gender bias in the workplace; advice to fathers new to the homefront; and tips for finding 50/50 solutions to deal with issues of money, time, and much more.


Refreshments will be served
