    • Business

Maureen Byrne, a Product Manager at MobileIron, relaunched after a 10-year career break raising her three children. Despite stellar credentials including a master’s degree in software engineering, work experience in the field prior to her career break, website development during her break, iOS development classes at Stanford, and Toastmasters training, Maureen candidly describes her initial return to work as a time filled with self-doubt and “fear of exposure.” Hear how Maureen learned to appreciate the perspective she gained from her career break, how it became a part of what she brings to the table as an employee, and how she “found her voice” after relaunching.

Note: Maureen was participant on the relauncher panel, “What I Wish I’d Known,” at the 2017 iRelaunch Return to Work Conference with the Stanford Alumni Association. She will be returning to the Conference on May 1, 2018 and will join other panelists for this highly anticipated discussion.
