Working Moms in Science and Law

May 22, 2009

We were pleased to see the University of Chicago and Northwestern University collaborate recently on a Motherhood & Success in Science Panel Discussion (follow-up article here). Though the particulars of our careers differ we are all ultimately working mothers and face similar challenges in fulfilling our personal and professional aspirations.Kudos to Chicago and Northwestern for spearheading this conversation!

In related news, the May ABA Journal contained a mention of consulting firm Flex-Time Lawyers which helps firms save money and lawyers attain more job satisfaction through telecommuting and reduced schedules. Additionally, check out their article about dual law career couples making time for work and family. The article is reminiscent of our recent Getting to 50/50 event which Booth students and alumni can access online.

And lastly, check out the Wall Street Journal’s recent Extreme Child-Care Maneuvers article!
