Women as Breadwinners

a CCSW interactive brown-bag discussion

Unsure of your ability to be a provider?

Do you find it scary that your family's sole source of support might lie on you?

Video clip showings of an interview with Facebook's COO, Sheryl Sandberg, will open up discussion of concerns that women face when caught between the workplace, home life, and societal expectations.

Topical issues include:

  • Gender Stereotypes
  • The Likability Factor
  • Women's Self-thoughts of their success
  • Self-Doubt
  • Dual Roles & Work Life Balance
  • Supportive Partnerships
  • Building Confidence

Join us to build your confidence and empower your success!

To accommodate as many schedules as possible, we are offering this over the lunch hour. Participants are welcome to bring a brown bag lunch.
