New York, NY (October 1, 2019) – Epstein Becker Green is pleased to congratulate Jennifer Gefsky, Member of the Firm, on the launch of her book, Your Turn: Careers, Kids, and Comebacks—A Working Mother’s Guide, co-authored with Stacey Delo and published by HarperCollins.
“For those who have decided to step away from the corporate world, whether it’s for one year or 20, we show you how to stay current and how to pivot to something more meaningful when your old job doesn’t exist anymore or you simply want a change,” says Gefsky. “We hope that Your Turn provides a clear roadmap for how to navigate key work + life transition points.” Your Turn is also the story of how companies can attract and retain women talent during the “Messy Middle” and beyond, with a prescription for best practices throughout the book.
As a firm, Epstein Becker Green is committed to “giving our staff members the platform to expand and improve their professional standing and skills while allowing for the freedom to thrive in a family-friendly environment that provides flexibility, variety, and a culture of promoting advancement opportunities.” These values are affirmed in Epstein Becker Green’s Values Commitment.
Ms. Gefsky praised Epstein Becker Green’s supportive environment with the following acknowledgment in Your Turn: “I would also like to thank Epstein Becker Green for creating a culture where female lawyers (many of whom also happen to be mothers) are supported and therefore able to succeed, both at work and at home.”
Your Turn has received extensive early praise. Hardcover, digital, and audiobook selections are available at bookstores and online at Barnes & Noble and Amazon. For a full list of retailers, please visit YourTurnBook.com.
