Thursdays with ThirdPath – Free Monthly Webinars
2018-2019 Theme: Making the Impossible Possible: Family Well-Being AND Gender Equality
When Anne-Marie Slaughter’s article “Why Women Still Can’t have It All” went viral in 2012, we immediately recognized adding “men and women” to each of her 5 mandates summarized ThirdPath’s mission since being founded almost 20 years ago. This year we’ve added a sixth – see December – and in partnership with some of the other amazing organizations out there fighting for change, we’ve decided to explore how these 6 mandates help make the impossible, possible.
Join our free interactive webinars – 2nd Thursdays of the month – from 1:00-2:00pm ET. To receive webinar link click on “Sign up for Events” above. Or catch previous webinars by watching our YouTube videos or subscribing to iTunes.
