Finding Balance: An Investigation of Women, Work, and Family

Work is an important part of our lives. While some people “work to live” and see work as a necessary evil that enables them to enjoy other aspects of their lives, others “live to work” and derive a sense of meaningfulness in and/or through their labor. Through the investigation of recent research in positive organizational scholarship and in-depth classroom discussions, we will come to better understand the meaning(s) of work, how we can seek out work that we find meaningful, and how we can work to create organizations that enable others to find meaningfulness in their work.
