“What we really need to be thinking is that women have changed as much as they can. It is time for workplaces to change. It’s time for policies to change. And, it’s time for men to change.” - Brigid Schulte

In this episode, Gloria welcomes to the show Director of the Better Life Lab at New America and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, Brigid Schulte, and co-founder and CEO of Kinside, Shadiah Sigala to talk about the topic of how working mothers can succeed in the workplace and at home. Brigid and Shadiah share their experiences as mothers in the workplace.

They answer audience questions on pregnancy discrimination, the superhero myth, and the double standard that working mothers face. Gloria salutes all working parents, especially single mothers, and argues that we should all put parenthood on our resumes in order to highlight the emotional intelligence and other skills that accompany being a parent. Finally, Brigid and Shadiah share specific strategies and resources for women who want to build a career, earn a fair and competitive wage, and balance a family.  

The included interview first aired live on YouTube during Take The Lead’s Virtual Happy Hour. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxHREHtwFnI
