Join us for this inaugural luncheon event
Friday April 15, 2016
Marshall Hall, Bingemans
Featuring: Dr. Anne-Marie Slaughter
Author : “Unfinished Business: Women Men Work Family”
In keeping with St. Mary’s commitment and reputation for reaching beyond the walls of the hospital, “St. Mary’s She Shares” marks the beginning of an ongoing healthy living dialogue with the women of our community.
Dr. Anne-Marie Slaughter, Princeton Professor and former Director of Policy Planning for the United States Department, will be the first “She Shares” speaker. Slaughter, who wrote the controversial 2012 article “Why Women Still Can’t have it All”, will present her perspective on “Righting the Balance Between Competition and Care”
The work-family issue is neither a women’s issue nor an issue limited to “work” and “family.” It’s an issue of the fundamental balance between competition and care: in our personal lives, our workplaces, and our society as a whole. Self-interest and care for others are the two basic forces of human nature; we cannot survive without both of them either as individuals or as a group. But society is badly out of balance, tilted far over toward the competition side of the spectrum. The result is a care deficit: for our children, our elders, our communities, ourselves. The impact of that deficit on our society over the medium and long term is as profound as the economic deficit. Righting the balance will: advance women at all levels of our society; provide men with many more choices than they enjoy today; revitalize communities; invest in our human capital for generations to come; and enhance creativity and productivity in the economy.
