Jump-start your return

Return from parental leave during these complicated times

Is it time to return to work after taking parental leave? Under normal circumstances, this can be a tough transition to make.

The Return Summit is here to help. This virtual experience will build the leadership skills you’ll need for life as a working parent. You’ll get a balanced mix of career development and life strategies. You’ll also learn how to re-start your career while working apart from your team and manager.

Plus, you’ll walk away with the insights, tools and actionable steps you’ll need to be productive, engaged and successful – as a professional and a parent.

Want to jump-start your return to work with less stress and more success?
