MOVE AND SHAKE WORK-LIFE BALANCE RETREAT
at the University of Chicago,
Chicago, IL August 30 – September 1, 2013
This will be a gathering of high performing women, who want to explore the ways in which they can develop a well-rounded lifestyle. We realize that there is a need for a women’s retreat for women of color to explore the intersection of their professional, personal, and social experiences.
The Move and Shake Women’s Retreat is an event during which facilitators will expose women to solutions on how to navigate their multiple identities such as motherhood or being a first generation academic. This guided retreat will help women to attain their highest and best professional and academic performance.
Move and Shake Retreat Information:
Move and Shake Women are proud recipients of the Innovation Grant from the University of Chicago’s Graduate Student Affairs Office (GSA)! Because of this generous grant we will launch the 2013 Move and Shake Work – Life Balance Retreat. It will be held in Ida Noyes Hall and the Logan Center, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL, August 30 — September 1 2013.
