Change lives. Change organizations. Change the world.
This course examines the strategies that highly educated women and men use to combine work and family, and that managers can bring into play to help others achieve balance. Topics include the pluses and minuses of becoming a stay-at-home mom or dad; the economic value of unpaid labor; the career trade-offs necessary to balance two high-powered careers and children; the economics of marriage, fertility, child care, and elder care; the gender division of labor in the home; time-management and work/family conflicts; strategies for making change in the work place; and the role of public policy.
The course provides a safe space for open discussion of difficult issues. Guest speakers address these issues in their own lives and organizations, and network with students at lunch.
This elective course is offered to all Stanford GSB and Sloan students. Current students, please check MyGSB for more information.
