Being a working mom is the new norm but that doesn’t make it any easier. This week’s cuppa talks to four working moms — in non-profit, healthcare, business, and entertainment — who have juggled contracted and self-employed roles, motherhood, and breastfeeding.

A webinar for HR and Diversity Professionals.
80% of people actively look for flexible working options in prospective employers. So why do so few employers enable and support flexible working despite the fact that the ‘right to request’ flexible working for all employees has been in place for over 2 years?
We’ll be sharing our latest research findings to shed light on the needs, wants and challenges from both sides of the employee/employer fence.
Leading employers from the technology sector will be joining us to share their experience and the challenges and benefits of embracing flexible working.
Technology company DADI decided to dispense with offices for good. Founding partner Chris Mair explains why he rejected bricks and mortar and how the company runs on an entirely distributed basis.
“We thought long and hard about the role of an office in the kind of company that we are and decided to give it a go without a permanent base.”
Flexible Boss editor Heather Greig-Smith asks Chris what lessons other organisations can learn from this approach, looking at the infrastructure, culture and effort needed to make remote working a business success.
This session will help organisations keen to embed flexibility and increase employee autonomy and engagement. Tips to help managers, departments and teams challenge the status quo - even if they want to keep their offices as well.

Unquestionably, talent retention is not just about mums any more. With Shared Parental Leave in place parents have greater flexibility than ever about how they ‘mix and match’ care of their children.
We’ll be sharing our latest research on what dads really want and need, and talking to our employer panellists, companies that are leading the field in understanding and supporting the needs of their working fathers.
The discussion will be covering:
• What do fathers actually want and need from their employers?
• How do businesses benefit from engaging and supporting new and expectant dads?
• What happens if we ignore dads and focus only on mums?
• How do we take this forward: what does best practice look like?

Data Residency consists of issues and approaches related to the location of data and metadata, and how to minimize the risk of adverse consequences due to the many laws and regulations that constrain where various types of information (financial, private, sovereign, etc.) can be stored. The OMG Data Residency Working Group published two important discussion papers in 2017: a study of Data Residency Challenges and Opportunities for Standardization, and a Data Residency Maturity Model. OMG's intent is to develop standards to describe laws and regulations on one hand, and the sensitive nature of a dataset on the other hand, allowing tools to expose the issues on might face when moving that data from one location to another. Recorded September 27 in Ottawa, Canada.Read more >

With global M&A activity on the rise, companies should prepare themselves for potential post-acquisition disputes prior to buying or selling a business. Often times, the contract between the parties will address the process to be followed in the event of any purchase price disputes and will reference the use of a neutral arbitrator.
This presentation will address the important role of a neutral arbitrator in purchase price disputes, including how that role is created, defined and executed, from the initial negotiation of the purchase price agreement to the final opinion given to the parties by the neutral arbitrator. The presentation will also briefly highlight the most common types of working capital account and other post-closing adjustment disputes that a neutral arbitrator typically adjudicates, as well as controversies regarding GAAP, consistency, and whether alternatives to GAAP apply.
