Jump-start your return

Let's get you ready for your return from parental leave

Let’s celebrate the start of your new life as a working parent. We celebrate before we have our babies. Why not before we return to work, too?

The Return Summit is more than a celebration. It’s an interactive experience that’ll 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. 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?
