How Female Guilt impacts Gender Balance
We’ve got a very special International Womens Day meet up this month, focused on the IWD theme of ‘Driving Gender Balance in the workplace”.
Join us and our panel, in support of the incredible charity The Girls Network, to share and debate our experiences of how Guilt uniquely affects women in the workplace and who work for themselves and it’s impact on gender balance.
Our liberation over the last 100 years has been an empowering and necessary shift in the workplace. However, as a result we seem to have taken on more and more and find ourselves expected (or expecting ourselves) to have everything and be giving our full attention and care to all, at all times.
As a result, we’re spending a lot of time feeling Guilty. Guilty that we’re not looking after our health enough, that we’re not in the office enough, that we’re not being the best parents to our children, that we’re not succeeding the way we ‘should’, that we’re not focusing on our family and personal relationships, that we’re not on top of the life admin…the list goes on.
This is going to be something really special! We’ll be meeting at an enchanting peaceful retreat cottage in Cookham Dean, owned by the lovely Tricia Phillips who is a local solopreneur. We’ll be joining our national #dearteenageme campaign and sharing our advice to our teenage selves to help future generations of business women to keep driving gender balance in the workplace in a sustainable and enriching way.
Please bring cash for contributions to drinks as this will be a self-catered event.
Find us at Reddaways, Dean Lane, Cookham Dean, Berks SL69AF. This cottage is set back from the road with a long gravel drive. There will be GTG balloons outside. Coming from Cookham after you pass Whyteladyes Lane on the left, after the field ends, it is the first drive on the right. Coming from Cookham Dean it is the last drive on the left before the field opens up. Call me on 07738686694 if you get lost.
