Sometimes the biggest barrier to flexible working is you. Your employer won't bring it up, so maybe it's time to start the conversation. Our extract from Anne-Marie Slaughter's book, Unfinished Business tells you how… and we have 5 copies to give away. It's Movember so Dads: Get proactive with your prostate (not in front of the children). Our article explains what Movember is all about and why you should get involved. Plus a reminder that the Nanny Pilot Programme deadline has been extended.

It's time to start the conversation
In 2009, when Anne-Marie Slaughter accepted her dream job as the first female director of policy planning at the U.S. State Department under Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, she was confident she could juggle the demands of her position with her family life.

Even though she had a tremendously supportive boss and partner, eventually parenting needs caused her to make a decision to leave the State Department and return to an academic career that gave her more time for her family.

The reactions to her choice to leave Washington because of her kids led her to question the feminist narrative she grew up with. Her subsequent article for The Atlantic, "Why Women Still Can't Have It All," created a firestorm, sparked intense national debate, and became one of the most-read pieces in the magazine's history.

In her new book, Unfinished Business, Anne-Marie Slaughter presents her vision for what true equality between men and women really means and how we can get there.

It's Movember
Be proactive with your prostate
In case you didn't realise and you still have a clean-shaven face, it's MOVEMBER which means this month is dedicated to raising awareness of men's cancers, specifically Prostate Cancer and testicular cancer, as well as mental health and physical wellbeing in men.

The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives.

Since 2003, millions have joined the men's health movement, raising $685 million and funding over 1,000 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.

Prostate cancer is one of the diseases men can easily be treated for, if it's discovered early.
