Panel Event: Juggling Career and Family, and Making Time for Self Care

  • Blackburn Training Room, ACT Law Society Level 4, 1 Farrell Place Canberra Australia (map)

This event has now sold out - we apologise for any inconvenience. 

We invite you to join us for a joint panel event with Mothers Uplift Movement (MUM). Join us for a nourishing lunch and attend a discussion on the topic of: Juggling work with family responsibilities and making time for self-care.

Come and hear from our guest speakers about their experiences as working mums in the legal profession. It will also be a great opportunity to share your own anecdotes and tips and ask questions of other mums who are doing the juggle.

We look forward to hearing from the following panellists on this important topic:

  • Prue Bindon, Barrister at Blackburn Chambers and WLA ACT President
  • Margaret Tregurtha, General Counsel, Department of the Environment and the Energy
  • Lindsay Reid, teacher at Daramalan College and formerly a Senior Associate at King & Wood Mallesons

The session will be facilitated by Liz Huang Hughes-Brown and Alicia Prest from MUM who are also mums working in the law.

MUM is a movement which supports and encourages mums to take time out for themselves for self-care, to pursue career and personal development goals, or simply to take a holiday. We want to help remove the stigma and guilt around mums admitting that they need a break from their role as a mum.

Includes a warm two-course lunch with vegetarian option. Please RSVP by 18 August 2017.
