The Pandemic showed everyone just how fragile our childcare system is. And it changed the conversation about how infrastructure, especially child and eldercare, intersects with being part of the paid workforce. Particularly for Moms. And although flexible options, like shifted hours, work-from-home or hybrid schedules can help, many women find it uncomfortable to ask for the accommodations they need. Especially when it’s related to pregnancy or the path to parenthood at work.
Our Founder, Leslie Forde, talked with Stephanie Kramer about her book, Carry Strong: An Empowered Approach to Navigating Pregnancy and Work. In her book, Stephanie talks about ways to have those important, and sometimes uncomfortable conversations at work, as well as how leaders can create a supportive and safe environment for their employees.
