Worcester’s Young Professional Women Host Work-Life Balance Panel

Thursday, September 12, 2013


The balance between work, home + life is never easy. Worcester's Young Professional Women's Association is hosting a seminar on this very challenge.

Addressing the ever-relevant topic of work-life balance, Worcester’s Young Professional Women’s Association (YPWA) will host a Leadership Panel in collaboration with Worcester State University on this very topic.

This event, one of several educational seminars being offered during the YPWA’s 2013-2014 cycle, will focus on Work + Life Balance. The goal of the interactive discussion is to address the needs and concerns of women as they balance personal lives, families, education and work, and is open to women of all ages. The event will be held on September 25th t 5:30 pm inside the President’s Dining Room on the Worcester State University campus. Reservations are limited.

Featured panelists

Three featured panelists will lead the discussion at the event: Dr. Bobbi Kyle, Acting Associate Vice President for Continuing Education and Acting Dean of Graduate Studies; Dr. Lori Dawson, Director of Women’s Studies; and Kristl Courtemanche, current WSU Graduate Student who exemplifies a successful work life balance. “We are alternately told that women can have it all and that women should stop trying to have it all because that is an impossible goal," said YPWA President, Lynette Paczkowski, a litigation attorney at the law firm of Bowditch and Dewey. "In reality, the question is really how to prioritize, maximize, and be as fulfilled as we can. That is just one of the important discussions we will explore and one that many of us can contribute to.”


The YPWA’s mission is to engage and empower young professional women through educational and social endeavors. The organization’s membership is comprised of women from the Central Massachusetts Region, representing diverse industries and professional levels, gathering monthly at various locations throughout the City.
