Making It Work! Effectively Navigate Maternity / Paternity Leave Career Transitions

Maternity and paternity leave is a significant stage in one’s career. It’s often characterized with feelings of uncertainty, vulnerability, and lack of clarity as to what options are available or acceptable during such transitions. Learn how to plan and manage this transition with Avra Davidoff, MC, and Registered Psychologist.

In 2016, the Canadian Centre for Research and Counselling created a guide for both women and employers called Making It Work! How to Effectively Navigate Maternity Leave Career Transitions. Avra Davidoff, will speak to this guide and facilitate a small panel of CPAs who have taken a career leave in the past, or who are in the process of planning a leave.
