Do you ever feel like the pressure to be “Super Mom” leaves you overwhelmed? The Mothers’ Center of Greater Toledo collaborated with Lourdes University and has invited Valerie Young, a public policy analyst for Mom-mentum, to present “Public Policies and Our Lives as Mothers and Women”, to replace these feelings of exhaustion with motivation. She will discuss why mothers need to be more involved with public policies that affect them including maternity leave, child care, workplace flexibility and things that hinder mothers from returning to work. Young, also known as Your (Wo)Man in Washington, D.C., is a nationally-recognized speaker analyzing legislation through the lens of motherhood.
“It’s going to open up a lot of mother’s and women’s eyes when it comes to some of the roots and causes of issues that come with returning to the workplace and taking time off,” said Kate Fineske, a member of Mothers’ Center of Greater Toledo.
Wednesday, October 15 at 7pm. Franciscan Center Conference Rooms A/B, Lourdes University,
6832 Convent Blvd., Sylvania. Young’s blog: mom-mentum.org/blog/category/woman-in-washington.
