Alumni Spotlight

True or False: Pausing your career, even briefly, will lead to a dead end?
Choosing to pull back in your career to focus on kids, care for ailing parents, travel around the world or pursue a passion is still highly stigmatized in our society. We are taught to hide these "holes" in our resume as though they don't enable us to build skills and abilities that will be valued in the workplace. Work itself provides little room for us to be fully authentic when we are forced to hide that which we most deeply value. 

Lisen Stromberg, FTMBA 91, reveals in her book, Work, Pause, Thrive, that it's possible to integrate work and life priorities. Learn how trailblazing women have disrupted the traditional career paradigm to achieve their personal and professional goals, and how forward-thinking companies create workplaces that enable women (and Millennials) to thrive.
