educational event that joins experienced professionals seeking to return to the
workforce with career reentry experts and employers. The event, presented by
career services provider iRelaunch and Northwestern University’s Kellogg School
of Management, will be held April 27, 2012 at Evanston
Hilton Garden Inn near Chicago.
Held four times a year in the U.S. and London, the iRelaunch
Return to Work Conference focuses on return-to-work strategies and encourages
employers and professionals to engage in substantive and quality conversations.
The program emphasizes practical advice and real success stories.

attended12 iRelaunch events in the last three years: 95 percent of
participants are women, 75 percent have graduate degrees and 70 percent want to
return to conventional full-time jobs, according to iRelaunch. More than half
of attendees have "relaunched" their careers within one year of
attending the conference.
