Townhall: How to Balance Work and Life (Philadelphia)

  • The Yard 21 South 11th Street 4th Floor Philadelphia, PA 19107 United States (map)

Join Ladies Get Paid: Philadelphia for our last town hall of the year where we'll hear from local women about how they balance their work within and around their personal lives. At each town hall we ask our panelists to share their stories, and then we open the discussion to the room and encourage everyone to share or ask something. There will be refreshments available and time to meet and mingle before and after the panel.

Thank you to The Yard* for generously hosting us in their offices! Note: you will need to show a photo ID to access the building, and all attendees will receive a free week of coworking space at The Yard.

  • Bonkosi Hornshop manager at the Lululemon Local Fishtown and owner (by proxy) of Stripp’d Cold Pressed Juice. "The mantra I use to get through tough days (and workouts) is … 'Life is like a boomerang—what you give you get back.' And my email signature reads: “Sometimes you gotta create what you want to be a part of,” which speaks directly to what I’ve created for Lululemon Philadelphia and specifically at the Local Fishtown."

  • Justine Haemmerli is the Founder of Girls Gone Happy, a company that helps women approach big life questions and milestones with creativity, support, and clarity. For the past decade she's helped women navigate career transitions, figure out how to use their time thoughtfully, and create lives and work centered around their deepest values. "I'm a mom to a toddler, pregnant with my second, running two businesses, and gearing up to live out our family dream of staying for six months in Portugal, which is great but also scary. I am constantly navigating how hard it is to do all the things all the time, and love nothing more than talking about this with other ladies!"

The town hall will be moderated by Tasha McNerney, Ladies Get Paid Philly Ambassador. Organized by Ladies Get Paid: Philadelphia committee including Tasha, Vanessa Stella, and Kris Weldon.

We know finding childcare can be hard (and expensive!) so you’re welcome to bring your kids. Feminism can never start too young.
