The seminar “How to balance between work and family’’ which is organized by TEB Formation Academy was given by Prof Dr.Bengi Semerci on May 4 ,2015. Semerci highlighted the increasingly accepted fact that in big corporations, it is not possible to achieve a high level of work performance for those people who disregard their families. And she pointed that the saying “married to his/her work” is not valid anymore. She also emphasized that keeping the balance between work and family life is not a challange just for working women. She argued that social sanctions that push women to make a choice between their career and their family life, makes detrimental effects on marriages and development of the children. Through the answers to the questions from TEB participants, Semerci stated that determining how and where we define ourselves is the first step of a balanced life, and it continues with a right planning.
