Hivery Circle: A Fireside Chat with Stacey Delo and Grace Kraaijvanger


In this Fireside Chat with Hivery Founder Grace Kraaijvanger, Stacey Delo will give us some insight on her new book Your Turn: Careers, Kids, and Comebacks, co-authored with Jennifer Gefsky.

More than 15 million women working with children under the age of 18 in the United States find themselves smack in the Messy Middle, when career, caregiving, and parenthood collide — and confusion, opportunities, and decisions shift into high gear. It’s a universal challenge, a midlife career crisis even for today’s modern working women.

Your Turn was born out of passion for helping women navigate this challenge through Après, the career site founded in 2016 for women returning to or pivoting in the workforce. They’ve spoken with hundreds of companies to find out what’s important to them and have a unique insight into what women can do to make their own career transitions easier and more beneficial for everyone!

Praise for the book Your Turn: Careers, Kids, and Comebacks

"We can't truly thrive in a workplace that doesn't allow us to bring our whole selves to work. And too many women still feel that they have to choose between their career goals and their personal goals, often just as they are hitting their stride at work. Your Turn is the realistic yet positive guide today's women need to help them navigate a career path that allows them to succeed in all parts of their lives." -- Arianna Huffington, Founder & CEO, thrive global

“This is the book that wasn’t out there when I crashed out of the workforce after my first child was born, and the one I craved as I made my way back in. Non-judgmental, optimistic but realistic, Your Turn is the roadmap to finding your own way as a working woman with kids.” -- KJ Dell'Antonia, author of How to Be a Happier Parent

"Jen and Stacey don't pretend to have all the answers -- because only you can decide what's best for you and your family -- but they do have all the right questions to ask yourself as you navigate your personal and professional journey as a working mother, along with invaluable insight from hundreds of women and companies about what’s worked for them." -- Tiffany Dufu, Founder & CEO of The Cru, and author of Drop the Ball

Don’t hesitate to bring a friend or come alone and mingle with your Hivery community! Guests will enjoy complimentary lite bites and local wines by Bee Hunter Wine and sips from Living GTS Foods Kombucha.
