I wrote a guest blog this week for Business Women’s Finishing School & Social Club, a work oriented blog that addresses “Everything you didn’t learn in school that will help you survive the work of work”. My blog post describes my experiences in balancing motherhood and work.
A lot has changed since I began my career in the 1970’s. Working women and mothers are the norm, not a novelty. Equal rights are guaranteed under the law not only for women, but for other classes of employees who were formerly discriminated against based on race, age, physical abilities, affectional orientation, etc.
Although the laws have changed, the difficulty of giving work and priorities outside of work adequate attention remains challenging. What’s your story about balancing work and life?
