Jessica L. Pollet discussed "Your career is impacting your life..." at the Ark Group Women Legal Conference
As lawyers, to what extent must we have to choose between personal and professional goals? This engaging panel discussion took a broad view of work/life balance elements set against long‐term goals (both personal and professional) and how these goals and aspirations impact one‐another. This session touched upon a few specific subject areas ranging from financial considerations (compensation, money & mindfulnss), to achieving balance in life (investing in yourself and/or your family), job satisfaction, career trajectory changes (should I stay or should I go?), self‐promotion, and other long-term professional (and personal) goals. Attendees also heard about the values and cultures of firms as a function of size and the management issues and personal issues involved.
