Bay Area Women Who Are Effectively Balancing Motherhood and Careers

 

 

 

San Francisco, Calif. , August 29, 2007 -  Do you want to hear from the first part-time director at eBay who manages a large team, approves part-time positions for her staff, and has three young children?  Or perhaps you want to laugh with self-deprecating mom Sarah Clarke, DJ of ALICE radio’s popular morning radio show about her life as a working mom that includes both a wildly exciting career and participation in her son’s classroom on the same day?  If Flexperience and MommyTrackd.com’s first event was any indication, more than 500 working moms will be saying “yes” to this second event, tailored to professionals who have interesting, flexible career paths – part time, flex time, independent consulting, or taking years off and coming back strong -- without sacrificing an enriching family life. 

 

 

Today, women are increasingly interested in blending parenthood with a career. However, the careers they seek today are not the traditional full-time, office-bound roles.  In fact, the Pew Research Center survey released last month found that only 21 percent of working mothers with children under 18 viewed full-time work as the best arrangement, down from 32 percent in 1997.  Sixty percent of the working mothers said a part-time job would be best, up from 48 percent ten years ago.

 

 

In support of this growing trend, Flexperience™ (www.FlexperienceStaffing.com), a Bay-Area based boutique staffing firm, and Mommy Track’d (www.Mommytrackd.com), a popular eZine for working moms, are hosting their second large event dedicated to professional working mothers on October 18, 2007, at Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco, CA.  Sponsored by leading Bay-Area employers including Latham & Watkins, Genentech, and Deloitte and jam packed with a panel of extraordinary women juggling career and kids in different ways, the event is sure to inspire women to find new ways to balance their professional and parental lives.
