Thursdays with ThirdPath – Free Monthly Webinars
This year’s webinar theme: A world of expanded possibilities, flexing for stronger families and successful workplaces
Flex and remote work allow both men and women to integrate work and caregiving – improving the lives of individuals and strengthening families. Supporting all genders to play an active role in caregiving also becomes a critical driver in creating more inclusive organizations. Changes like these are worth fighting for! They also promote the well-being of all employees across the life cycle! This year’s Thursday webinars will focus on how to make the most of this moment in time and build on these important pandemic lessons.
Our free interactive webinars happen on the 2nd Thursday of every month from 1:00-2:00pm ET.
Register here. Or check out the YouTube recordings of our previous webinars below.

Different Jobs, Different Solutions

NOVEMBER – 11/18/21 (3rd Th)
A New Kind of Manager
Managing remote teams requires a new set of skills. Leaders who have experimented with flex and remote work throughout their careers developed these skills and became a resource to their organizations as they navigated the pandemic. Discover how ThirdPath leaders put remote work into action so you can follow in their footsteps.
DECEMBER – Town Hall – 12/9/21
People are making big changes to create a life that prioritizes physical and mental well-being.

Remote Work & Sharing Care
Alongside the mass exodus of women from the workplace, some couples quietly learned how remote work helps two-parent households share family responsibilities. Learn how couples began their process of sharing, and how it changed when the baby was born. Join us for real-life examples so you can launch your shared care journey today.
FEBRUARY – Town Hall – 2/10/22
Becoming a parent can provide the perfect opportunity to begin your work-life integration journey. Join this interactive discussion with author, Amy Beacom, and Project Matriarchs as we reimagine the opportunity of combining work and parenting.
MARCH – 3/10/22
A powerful benefit of promoting work-life integration for all is how it can become a cornerstone for building more diverse workplaces. Ask ThirdPath board members, Ellen Ostrow and Tonya Horton how tearing down outdated assumptions of “the ideal worker” lets us shape a new workplace that celebrates the true diversity of how we work and live.
APRIL – 4/14/22
New Ways to Live
Remote work opens up many new possibilities around where we live. Instead of moving for jobs, we can choose to move closer to friends and family who become an important part of our care network. Join our discussion about Bella DePalulo’s amazing book – How We Live Now – and learn how these ideas apply at every life stage.
MAY – 5/12/22
Integration for Any Reason
For over two decades, we’ve supported people to follow a “third path” – an integrated approach to work and life. Many did this to create family time. This webinar will show you how two professionals started down the third path for very different reasons, and the lessons they’ve learned along the way.
JUNE – Town Hall – 6/10/22
Men Flexing Work – YES We Can!
At the heart of promoting gender equity and family well-being is supporting fathers to overcome the unique obstacles men face when redesign work. Doing this also paves the way for their increased sharing of care at home. Hear from dads who have overcome the obstacles and become the dads they’ve always wanted to be.
