Join award-winning author and Founder of Working Daughter, Liz O’Donnell, as she discusses the challenges women have in balancing eldercare and their career. A master storyteller, Liz shares her personal journey of caring for her aging parents – who were both diagnosed with terminal illnesses on the same day – and trying to manage her career. The subject may be tough but Liz’s delivery is uplifting, and at times, hilarious. Audiences find Liz’s struggles relatable, her ability to find humor in any situation comforting, and her strategies for not only surviving caregiving, but actually thriving during and after, accessible and actionable. Liz’s story is unique, but her message is universal.
