Join Dalit's hosted lunch table: Finding self fulfilment at work

The workspace of today stretches well beyond the role we were hired for. Employees are seeking identity, belonging, and self fulfilment, in addition to the desire for professional growth. Self fulfilment can mean many things, and to a growing number of people, that includes thinking about a future that includes more than just oneself.

In 2020 The Women’s Network at The New York Times (the biggest ERG at the company) initiated and worked closely together with corporate benefits team to bring fertility benefits to the company for the first time. This is a huge milestone and one that led to several other benefits around family planning at the company. As a co-chair of the Women’s Network and committee lead for Project Hatch (the committee that led this initiative), Dalit will share her personal story that ignited this initiative and she'll invite participants to share their own experiences and discuss ways of enhancing self fulfilment in the workplace.

To join this lunch table on Tuesday 7 February please sign up at the registration desk.
