At the end of March, we will have the opportunity to learn all we need on coping with financial responsibilities when living and working in Greece, and, on the other hand, how to better balance between motherhood and work responsibilities.

“Work-Life Balance” Empowerment seminar

Motherhood and work: how can these two important parts of our life be balanced successfully? This seminar addresses the needs of women who are mothers or would like to have at some point a family and who also want to have a satisfying job which also provides them with financial independence.

Two women professionals with expertise in psycho-social support and empowerment of families, mothers and children of migrant background, focus, with the collaboration of the participants, on the challenges of employment and motherhood, finding solutions and using the support network available to a mother.
