The presentation by psycotherapist Ms Angele Licari on “Our Children - Our Teachers” was well received by the audience due to its reality, carefulness and honesty on the topic discussed. Same applied to the interview with Dr Charlotte Camilleri from the Malta Employers Association on the “Working Mothers, rights and obligations“.

The first discussion tackled the topic of “Working Mothers - Not enought time?“, with the participation of Ms Joan Haber (Alka Ceramics), Ms Marie Louise Pace (PAL Malta), Ms Helga Ellul (Playmobil Malta), Ms Pauline Azzopardi ( HSBC Bank) and Ms Ruth Farrugia (Fino & Sons Ltd).
