Today, only 48% of mothers work-full time and nearly one quarter of college educated women are currently pausing their career to care for children. Meanwhile, 64 million Millennials are expected to become parents in the next decade. For them, it’s all about work/life balance. But the workplace has not adjusted to the realities of working parents. As a result…
Additionally, the burden of student debt coupled with the high cost of child-care mean many couples are forced to choose. What happens? Often, it’s the women who pause their careers.
We want women in leadership, but the next generation needs insights and answers so they can integrate kids with their careers. Work Pause Thrive provides solutions and tools so you can live life on your terms.
We work with companies to assess their structures, the unconscious biases, and their day-to-day practices. We work with women to unpack their own self perceived limitations. We also work with change making initiatives to ensure gender equality is woven into the fabric of companies, industries, and cultures.
As an award-winning writer and journalist, Lisen has researched and written on numerous subjects including women in technology, female entrepreneurship, the power of male allies, how companies are fighting unconscious bias, and trailblazing women who left their careers and are now back on track.
It details how inflexible workplace structures, public policy failures, and cultural stigmas against parents in the workplace hold women AND men back from living lives of authenticity and meaning.
