It’s as easy as pie?: My perspective balancing career, family and society’s expectations

Wednesday, 21 July 08:00 – 09:00

“You are going to have a career, how do you ever expect to have time to make pie?” Jessica never considered that she may have to make choices between this idealized vision in her head and career goals. It can be difficult navigating the “gender stereotypes and expectations” that society subconsciously places on a wife and mother.

In this talk Jessica DeGroote Nelson, Director of Technology and Strategy at Optimax, will share her continuous journey to find balance, between career in strategic planning and technical road mapping, family and the guilt that she’s only able to carve out time to make apple pie for Thanksgiving (and on Pi Day)! Listen to Jessica share her perspective on this balance pre-pandemic, during the pandemic and dream for what post-pandemic expectations might be for the future women engineers and scientists following their passion.
