Liz tailors all of her speaking engagements to her audience. Sample topics include:

 

Surviving and Thriving as a Working Mother: How do happy, successful women manage it all? Liz shares the five limiting beliefs that hold women back from pursuing their dreams and the eight habits of women who are thriving based on their own definitions of success.

 

How to Achieve The Caregiver’s Gain: Yes, caregiving can be a burden, and today’s working daughters, caught in the sandwich generation are stressed. But did you know, caregiver’s can realize tremendous psychological, emotional and even physical benefits from caring for someone else. Liz teaches you how to achieve the caregiver’s gain.

 

Keep the Work in Working Mother: Many women who work full time report they would rather not. In fact, 44% of working mothers say not working outside the home would be ideal.  But it’s been well documented in research from Catalyst and Credit Suisse that women improve both productivity and profits. What if we could make having a career and having a life more manageable? Liz outlines the steps businesses can take to create a workplace culture that keeps women at work, increases productivity and boosts morale.

 

Supporting Caregivers: A Business Imperative: There are 39.6 million people providing unpaid care in the U.S., and the majority are women. Caregiving costs businesses $6.6 billion to replace employees who leave, manage workday interruptions and absenteeism. Liz will give managers, HR pros, and women, practical tips for keeping caregivers at work.

 

 

Why Inclusion Programs Fail, But Yours Can Succeed: Efforts to advance and retain women in the workplace aren’t working. According to McKinsey & Company, 70% of attempts to transform a corporate culture fail. That’s because most programs only focus on half of the problem – what’s happening at the office. In order to support women at work, we need to examine what’s going on at home too. Liz makes the case for why business should close the housework gap in order to close the gender gap, and offers practical solutions to do so.
