- Jennifer Petriglieri, Professor of Organizational Behavior, INSEAD
For Sheryl Sandberg, “the most important career choice you’ll make is who you marry.” Should we agree or not, as anyone who is part of a dual career couple can attest, succeeding at both love and work is easier said than done. In this session, Jennifer Petriglieri will share some of the findings from her ongoing research on dual career couples. She will touch on the changing nature of romance and careers, question the myth of the “perfect relationship” and offer some practical insights for those navigating private and professional life.
The session will begin with a presentation, followed by an interactive discussion with the participants.
