Work/Family Life Balance

WORK/FAMILY LIFE BALANCE

There are only so many hours in the day in which to balance a career, a family, a social life, and all the other obligations that go along with being a well-rounded person – how to juggle it all with grace? And, what happens when there’s a new baby or an illness added to this mix? We’ll take a look at how employment policies do or don’t support working families with attorney Phoebe Taubman from the national organization A Better Balance and with Kathy Day, a local business owner and mother who’s figured out how to make it all work and now helps others do the same.

PLUS - We’ll explore how family-friendly are some of Alaska’s employers; we’ll meet an American woman who is moving to Sweden to have her baby; and Alaskan teens tell us how they balance their crazy schedules.
