Almost a decade ago, Linda Schadler was part of a team of women who wrote a book chapter for Success Strategies for Women in Science: A Portable Mentor, by Peggy Prichard. The working title for their chapter was “A Two Career Family—The Rules of the Game.” A kinder title was chosen, but this title captures the essence of how they thought about their message. At this early morning event, Linda Schadler provided some amusing anecdotes and thought-provoking comments on how you can’t have it all, but you can have a lot. She shared the experiences of the women in the book chapter and others she has known as they (and their partners) figured out how to have successful professional careers and personal lives. There was some emphasis on couples with children, but most of the messages apply to all—as we all have lives outside the workplace. She concluded by engaging the audience in some sharing of stories and constructive dialogue.
