Miss a recent Cityparents event that sounded interesting? Here’s another chance to catch up on our recent events and hear about what’s coming up this quarter.
November was one of our busiest months on record with 10 events covering a broad range of parenting and career topics including how to manage sibling rivalry, raising resilient children, children’s mental health, inclusive leadership and personal brand. The month also saw our latest Career Conversation – we’ll be running more of these during 2017 so if you’re interested in attending one of these mentoring lunches with a senior professional, please keep an eye out for announcements. During December we heard about how parents can help develop a growth mindset for both themselves and their child in an interesting seminar run by Jackie Beere, and received plenty of tips on how to motivate children to do their homework and encourage them to co-operate in ‘homework matters’ run by Rachel Vecht of Educating Matters.
For your diary
It’s a new year, and we’re excited about our busy schedule for the next 12 months – and we’re adding more into the diary all the time. On 1 February in ‘managing your career through the maternity transition’ Talking Talent will provide support and advice for any Citymothers who are either on, about to go on or who have recently returned from maternity leave. A week later, our seminar on ‘mindfulness and wellbeing’ will provide practical strategies for any City professional interested in exploring a mindful approach to working and living well. We’re all very excited about our Speaker Series event on 23 February with Dame Stephanie Shirley – you can read a Q&A with Dame Stephanie here, and we can’t wait to hear her talk in person about her incredible life and career. In March we hold our first seminar for parents of disabled children; run by Working Families, this event will provide support for the unique challenges that occur when juggling caring with a demanding career. March also sees International Women’s Day, and we’re delighted that Nicola Horlick, the original City ‘superwoman’, will be joining us to share her experiences of balancing a high-profile City career with bringing up her six children.
There are many more events in the diary so please browse our full schedule here – and we look forward to meeting you at one soon!
