Join us as we celebrate over 14 years of supporting, inspiring and building community with pioneering men, women — as parents and leaders — modeling new ways to integrate work and life.
This year our Thursdays with ThirdPath webinars are focusing on “Flex Across the Lifecycle.” People need to flex for different reasons across the work/family lifecycle – not just women, but women and men, as well as families across the economic spectrum. Join us as we illustrate how flex is good for everyone every month of this year!
Our interactive webinars are free – just connect through our GoToMeeting link. Join us on the 2nd Thursday of the month from 12:30pm to 1:30pm ET.
