Working Mothers’ Reflective Group

May 19 - June 16

Liz Brnjak and Kristina Karlsson, both mothers, invite other working mothers to participate in a 5week reflective group of mothers to explore their experiences of working and leadership. We encourage participants of all ages with children of any age as we wish to have a diversity of experience, wisdom and reflection.

The group will meet at SiteWorks in Brunswick to explore the conscious and unconscious dimensions of: 

  • The tensions and patterns of experience that occur in workplaces for mothers with a particular focus on ‘role’, including the roles of ‘mother’, ‘worker’, ‘leader’, ‘manager’, etc. 
  • The realities  of systemic gender discrimination and inequality for working mothers 
  • The impacts on identities of mother, worker and other identities. For example, the judgement of either not being a good mother for working, or the sense that parents, particularly women lose their place in the workforce 
  • The societal, structural, political and personal barriers and dynamics that occur in the workplace and their impact on mothers and workplaces. 
  • The group will also provide a place for thinking about what insights, strategies, resources and tools might be available to manage the dynamics and to support working parents and organisations. 

Due to the current Covid-19 precaustions, the dates and times are TBC.
Expected to be May 2020
