Work Life Balance - Perspectives from the Swedish Model
Women of Influence
First 15-20 minutes is for networking Sandwiches & beverages included
Hosted by the Women of Influence Committee
Sweden has long been acknowledged for its healthy attitude to work life balance. As a country it was early to recognize the challenges faced by women who wanted to be both professionals and mothers; and took early steps to enable women and men to have the opportunity to parent their children. Where does Sweden feel it is in the challenge to achieve greater equality between men and women, both at home and in the workplace? What are the tangible gains that have been achieved, and what is yet to be realized? How do Swedes view the issue of women in senior management? Is this issue as controversial in Sweden as it has become in the West? As a female CEO, in a global organization, what advice would you offer young women who aspire to be CEOs; women who are mangers of people who are parents; and individuals who want to both work and parent? This session is designed to be interactive.
