    We come to our professional lives with a variety of Work/Life challenges.  Depending on life stage, the challenges could be child care, elder care, management of chronic illness, family responsibilities, and so much more.  How does the workplace sustain a high performance environment and support employees through their life cycle challenges?  What is the ROI for companies who adopt a family friendly workplace culture?  How do front line managers and C-suite executives translate the cultural messages? 

    Come prepared to discuss the following:

    - Work/Life integration challenges and success stories

        - Role of HR in establishing a work/life friendly culture
