Home alone, Home schooling, Home working… tips from the experts on January 28

Posted on: January 19, 2021 by admin

Expert journalists and authors will offer tips and advice in the latest Women in Journalism (WiJ) online event aimed at discussing working from home during the pandemic.

How do we manage to do it all? Working remotely, trying to home-school young children or cope with teenagers or young adults who would much prefer to be at university or out with their mates. Then there are those of us at home alone, trying to get motivated but struggling mentally with feeling lonely and isolated.

Part of the session will be in break out groups – you can choose your group when you book your tickets.

Date & TimeThursday 28 January 6pm – 7pm

To give advice and help us through these extraordinary challenging times we’ve gathered a panel of experts:
