Coffee and Conversations: The Identity Tug of War: Navigating the Competing and Oftentimes Conflicting Demands of being a Professional and a Caregiver  (back)
Professional identities change or, at the very least, get challenged once caregiver responsibilities and needs get added to the equation. Instead of feeling like in order to be successful one has to choose between their career or their families we want to normalize creating environments that ask, “how do we support parents and caregivers at work?” Removing the deficit bias, we want to celebrate and showcase the ability to manage these dual identities as having transferable skills. Get curious about how to examine and consider what success looks like within these roles. No matter where you are in your caregiving journey, we believe that everyone has wisdom and value to offer each other in a space where being an expert is unique to the individual. Participants are encouraged to talk, listen, and build connections as we hear how to support one another and learn how we can flourish within both of these meaningful roles.
