How to Optimize Family and Career Decisions

In this video, Myra Strober presents surprising and innovative ideas from economics to further your well-being and find work/family balance. Learn why you should view childcare as a family investment—not an individual expense. And find out why using your education and skills is a powerful investment in yourself. Strober also provides thoughts on when you should maximize efficiency (hint: stop perfecting that busywork!) and when being inefficient at home can produce the best results. This is Part 3 of a 3-part series titled “Work & Family: Getting to 50/50” from Stanford’s Clayman Institute for Gender Research.

By Myra Strober, Stanford professor and labor economist
