#tabootalk : Taboo of motherhood in the workplace

Listen to the recording of our ninth edition of #tabootalks where we will be discussing motherhood in the workplace.

Did you know that mothers include ⅓ of American workforce…

But still!!

Nearly half (46%) of mothers are currently seeking therapy.

Seventy percent of moms say they’ve had to make sacrifices in their careers to accommodate their family’s needs, with 50% citing childcare as the reason.

The report found that a lack of flexible work arrangements has led 52% of mothers to consider leaving the workforce or to reduce their hours.

We will be discussing:

1. What are the biases of mothers in the workplace?
2. What is motherhood penalty and some other phenomena and statistics around mothers in workplaces?
3. How can we create more inclusive workplaces for mothers in workplaces?
