An Evening with Kelly Watson, author of The Orange Line: A Woman's Guide to Integrating Career, Family and Life

Why do women find work-life balance so challenging?

Why is "having it all" such an elusive quest?

Why haven't women yet reached equality in the leadership ranks?

LMU alumna Kelly Watson (EMBA '06), with her co-authors, explored these questions and more through interviews with 118 college-educated women. In the resulting book, The Orange Line: A Woman's Guide to Integrating Career, Family, and Life, they document real-world career stories and daily life anecdotes about women's experiences in the work-life struggle. In their research they uncovered how women trap themselves with outdated but pervasive ideals and rigid behavioral rules that define the ideal woman. 

At this special event, Kelly Watson will introduce her research and answer questions about this highly topical and lively subject. 

This program is open to the public. Refreshments will be served, and copies of The Orange Line will be available for sale and signing. Seats are limited; please RSVP below.

Evening co-sponsored by EMBA, the William H. Hannon Library, Women's Leadership Council, and Young Presidential Associates.
