Future Women: Maxing your maternity leave, Melbourne

  • The Prince, Melbourne 2 Acland Street Saint Kilda, VIC, 3182 Australia (map)

Nothing about having a baby is expected, including the monumental impact that starting a family has on your career. In this session we’ll cover off on all the important stuff like how to fund your maternity leave, your rights at work and the dreaded difficulties of returning to the office. Our panel of inspiring and honest working mums will also give insights into how they juggle their busy competing interests (and also what happens when those balls come crashing down in a heap on the floor). Mamas and working mamas-to-be? We’re all in this together. FW editor-at-large Jamila Rizvi, will lead a discussion with Prue Gilbert from Grace Papers, Alys Gagnon from The Parenthood and Jessica Smith, former Paralympian and motivational speaker.
