Boundaries + Burnout // Ladies Get Paid Townhall

cat aldana speaker

Burnout Among Women: It's a Thing

A recent study by McKinsey shows that women account for 53% of corporate entry-level jobs, but only hold 37% of mid-management roles. That number drops to 26% for vice presidents and senior managers, and given only 11% of women choose to leave the workplace permanently to have children, there's something much bigger at play.

Between our always-on culture and the high expectations placed on us by our employers, our families, and ourselves, saying no can be really hard. At this town hall, we'll talk about our experiences with burnout and strategies for establishing the boundaries and self-care practices that can help us avoid it. As with each town hall, we'll ask our panelists to share their stories, and then we'll open the discussion to the room, and encourage everyone to share or ask something.

Key Takeaways:

  • How to recognize the signs of burnout
  • How to find and set boundaries
  • How to feel confident about enforcing boundaries

Bring friends—the more the merrier :)
Female-identifying, non-binary folks are welcome.

Cat Aldana, Founder of EAT STRETCH NAP™, is a speaker at this event. She will share her story surrounding this topic as an entrepreneur and yoga teacher.
