In this insightful video, Myra Strober presents surprising and innovative ways to further your well-being and find work/family balance using economic concepts as a framework for decision-making. Learn why you should view childcare as a family investment—not an individual expense—and how 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. View this third video in the three-part “Work & Family: Getting to 50/50” series from Stanford’s Clayman Institute for Gender Research and join the conversation!
