Can we have it all? – Women in Leadership

August 27, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am SAST

women in leadership



Can we have it all?


Anne-Marie Slaughter eloquently points out that having it all is by no means a male or female issue – emphasizing that it is a human issue affecting everyone. However, there is an unchanging, unwavering argument to redefine ‘having it all’ and reframing its suppositions. What does it mean to us individually? How do we define ‘ALL’.


This is an hour presentation – defining the ‘ALL’ – considering COVID, trying to find balance between working from home, home schooling, caring for young children, taking care of the home and seeking your individuality in this process as well as developing your own definitions of both personal and professional success.


The question of having it all needs to be considered from different perspectives especially from a female perspective as women are often sees as responsible for taking care of the family and home making this question more pertinent – with so much going on – can women really have it all?
