Author Event: Getting to 50/50: How Working Parents Can Have It All


Join the Stanford WorkLife Office and the Clayman Institute for Gender Research for a discussion of Getting to 50/50: How Working Parents Can Have It All with co-author Sharon Meers.

A game-changing read that’s set to do for the cultural dialogue around working families what Lean In did for working women, Getting to 50/50 offers encouragement, hope, and confidence to any parent who has ever questioned their choices regarding career and family. In Getting to 50/50, Sharon Meers and Joanna Strober share personal stories, compelling social science and a practical roadmap to help women – and men – stay engaged with their kids without sacrificing their careers.

Sharon Meers leads strategy for Magento, eBay’s global e-commerce platform. Previously, Sharon was a Managing Director at Goldman Sachs, where she worked for 16 years and was co-chair of the Investment Management Division’s Women’s Network. Sharon and her husband founded the Partnership for Parity at Stanford Graduate School of Business to make the dialog about men, women and work more fact-based, co-ed and fun. Sharon and her husband live in the Bay Area with their two children ages 9 and 12.
