Harvard Medical School: Conversations on Work Life Integration for Women

January 26, 2017, Boston, MA
Jodi Detjen, Speaker

Shift your mindset about your career. Define your own life. Professor Jodi Detjen will speak about the skills required for living an integrated life of work, family and personal identity based on her research in the book “The Orange Line.” She dispels old myths that trap women into outdated but pervasive ideals and rigid behavioral rules for the ideal woman. Instead she calls on women to change their belief system, to reframe their assumptions, shed their guilt and live and work smarter. Ms. Detjen is a professor of management at Suffolk University, MBA program director, and managing partner of Orange Grove Consulting, a consultancy focused on helping organizations achieve gender parity. (Closed Event)
