Work/Life Integration
Wednesday, May 27
12:00pm-1:00pm, Countway Library, Ballard Room
The Work/Life Integration model (developed by Dr. Stewart Friedman of the UPenn Wharton School of Business) offers an empowering alternative to the elusive promise of Work/Life Balance. In this seminar we will learn about the four life domains – Home, Community, Work, Self – and how to identify mutual value between different domains to better integrate each domain into one’s life. The benefits of practicing Work/Life Integration include greater sense of control, improved health and wellness, lower stress, and more energy.
