Sigmund Freud described love and work as the “cornerstones of our humanness”. Yet, as anyone who is part of a dual career couple can attest, succeeding at both is hardly straightforward.
In this session, Jennifer Petriglieri will share some of the findings from her ongoing research on dual career couples. She will touch on the changing nature of romance and careers, question the myth of the “perfect relationship” and offer some practical insights for those navigating love and work.
The session will begin with a talk, followed by an interactive discussion in which Jennifer is as (if not more) interested in hearing the dilemmas, interests and views of attendees as she is in sharing her own reflections and findings.
