CERIC roadshows are back this fall, across three cities in Canada for a series of free networking breakfast meetings, where attendees will hear from Dr Laura Hambley, author of CERIC’s Making It Work! How to Effectively Manage Maternity Leave Career Transitions: An Employer’s Guide.

The roadshows will allow dialogue between all who have a stake in career development for women at work including HR professionals, counsellors and coaches. The objective of the roadshows is to learn how best to take a proactive, positive approach to managing maternity leave career transitions:

  • What RESEARCH tell us about the challenges new mothers face returning to work after a maternity leave and impact on career progression
  • 15 low-/no-cost employer STRATEGIES to facilitate employee engagement that helps address obstacles faced by organizations and working mothers
  • User-friendly GUIDE that covers considerations for diverse populations, customizing career plans with flexible work options and redefining career development

Dr Hambley is a workplace psychologist based in Calgary. She founded Canada Career Counselling and is an Adjunct Professor of Psychology at the University of Calgary.
