Business is Personal: Managing Your Personal Life and Career

Move to a new city for my partner or have them move for me? Keep with the high-powered career or stay at home with the kids? Move back with an ill parent or have them move in with me? Are these my only choices?

Life isn’t black and white and neither are the choices that you’ll have to make between your personal life and your career. And the time to start thinking about and discussing these life events is now. Please join WWIB, the Wharton 22s, and Wharton Leadership for a panel on life’s different shades of grey with WG ’05 alumni. They’ll discuss how choices in their personal lives directly affected their career paths in ways that no one talked about while in school. It’s one of the few opportunities where you’ll be able to ask executives all kinds of personal questions. You’re dedicating two years to plan for your career. Why not spend part of that time planning for your life?

A Talk with Josh Levs

A Talk with Josh Levs

As part of WWIB Week, join the 22s, WWIB, and the Work/Life Integration Project for a free talk with Josh Levs, author of "All In: How Our Work-First Culture Fails Dads, Families, and Businesses – And How We Can Fix It Together."

Josh is a Yale grad and well-known CNN journalist. When his third child was born prematurely he needed time off work to care for his newborn, his wife, and his other children. Time Warner, his employer, had a generous parental leave policy for biological mothers and both parents of adopting children, but not for biological fathers. As a result, he sued, made headlines, and ultimately helped catalyze a change in the company’s policy. Thus the seeds for his well-researched book were sown.
