My Mother My Mentor: What Grown Children of Working Mothers Want You to Know with Author, Pamela F. Lenehan

Join author and business leader Pamela F. Lenehan for this important discussion.

My Mother, My Mentor: What Grown Children of Working Mothers Want You to Know 

All mothers are working mothers. But ever since the 1960’s and 1970’s, many moms are also pursuing careers outside the home. Their stories—and their grown children’s stories—have long been absent from discussions on parenting and work-life balance. 

In her book, Pamela Lenehan documents the experiences, challenges, and advice of 68 mothers and grown children. She also unpacks survey data from more than 1,000 career moms. Her findings? Come and listen! 

This event is ideal for women who:

  • Work outside the home or have a daughter, sister, niece, or friend who does
  • Sometimes struggle to balance the demands of home and career
  • Have concerns about how career choices impact their families
  • Seek parenting strategies that work well, and need help with areas that warrant special attention
