Do you have a job/life’s purpose that you are passionate about? Do you have children? If you answered yes to both, would it be fair to say that sometimes you struggle with balancing the two? Not to mention maintaining a healthy relationship with your co-parents/wider family, keep food on the table, and give yourself the care you need to stay resilient, motivated and inspired. Issues with balancing work, family and personal wellbeing may have even become stickier in the context of managing lockdowns and reduced mobility.
This GEN Grove provided a space to share our challenges and (small) victories in finding that balance. We welcomed lessons learned, top tips on how to negotiate important work matters and the needs of our children, and meatier discussions around the gender and class politics of it all.
