Work-Life Balance: Can it Exist?

We all face different practical challenges and choices when it comes to the shape of our daily lives. Maybe you're wanting to start a family. Maybe you already have one! Are you a caregiver of aging parents? A single with too much on the go? A bit overwhelmed, or wanting to try new things but don't know where to start?

On Wednesday, June 28 at 5:30 PM, join Drawn Together Vancouver at DHX Media at 380 West 5th Street, for an intimate chat with successful women in the business who will be discussing how they find balance in their lives.

Event is free but space is limited. RSVP to kasey.harris@dhxmedia.com.
