    What's the big deal about divorce? Why should we read and talk about it when everyone around us seems to be fine with it? The truth is: no matter what our family background, our age, or our state in life is, we all need to rediscover the immense impact that family life has on us and on our culture.

About The Event

Please join us at the Clay Pit Wednesday, December 4th at 6:00 PM as Dr. Ashleen Menchaca-Bagnulo outlines the factors that make women's involvement in the workforce especially challenging. She will also suggest some measures that could be taken to facilitate women's exit and re-entry into the workforce, given their dual role as caretakers and employees. Following her presentation, we will enjoy a roundtable discussion of this topic over a meal. The meal is free, but donations to help defray the cost are most welcome.

Space is limited to the first 20 people who register, so reserve your spot today!
