9 pm 3. What Relationship and Career Empowerment Looks Like Right Now #MeToo, #TimesUp, and #EqualPay are more than just Twitter trends: In a time when stress and pressure be a boss babe at everything you do is at an all-time high, they represent a movement of women intent on making “70 cents on the dollar” a thing of the past, of sharing the emotional labor at home, and of extending a hand down the ladder to help pull more women up beside them. What does this mean for how we evolve our sense of empowerment—and how does wellness help guide the new terms? Join our sex and career experts for a frank and eye-opening conversation. It’s one that we all should be having right now.

Moderator: Latham Thomas, Founder of Mama Glow, Doula + Well+Good Council Member

Well+Good Council Panelists: Gabrielle Bernstein, New York Times Best-Selling Author on Modern Spirituality + Well+Good Council Member

Lila Darville, sex and intimacy coach

Claire Wasserman, career coach, founder of Ladies Get Paid
