Explore the challenges women face when returning to work from raising a family through a positive psychology lens.

On May 28th, Midlands Hospitality Network will welcome ‘Becoming’ co-founders, Leni Kasparis, and Robyn Filep who will be our keynote speakers.

Meet our speakers

Leni has worked in a corporate setting for most of her career, in recruitment, sales and account management, supporting hospitality businesses from a supplier perspective. She’s the mum of a sassy 3-year-old with another on the way.

With an MSc in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology and almost a decade of coaching under her belt, Robyn has specialist knowledge of people. Her biggest passion comes from seeing teams and individuals make forward steps and breakthroughs in their development.

Through some compelling data, Leni and Robyn will be looking at tools, resources and support they can offer to improve the lives of women in and out of the hospitality workspace.

Together they will be combining their wealth of experience in this topic to make hospitality a safer space for women.

If you employ and/or work with women, this is for you. 

Returning to work in the hospitality industry after maternity leave can present significant challenges for mothers. From grappling with the demands of irregular schedules and long hours to balancing childcare responsibilities, the transition back to work can be overwhelming. Many mothers face the daunting task of juggling their professional commitments with the needs of their newborns, often experiencing feelings of guilt and anxiety about leaving their children in the care of others. Additionally, the fast-paced nature of the hospitality sector may exacerbate stress levels, as mothers navigate high-pressure environments while adjusting to the demands of parenthood.

Leni and Robyn will be providing valuable insights into the unique challenges and needs of returning mothers, fostering empathy and understanding in the workplace. By gaining a deeper understanding of the experiences and concerns of returning mothers, employers can better support them through tailored policies and accommodations, ultimately improving employee retention and satisfaction.

Attending this session demonstrates a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace, fostering a culture of respect and support for working parents.

Expect to leave better equipped and with the knowledge and tools necessary to create a more inclusive and supportive work environment for all employees.
