EP 26: Supporting working parents. With Sarah K. Peck

Today I had the pleasure of speaking and laughing with Sarah about the changes happening in our parenting and work life. As she shares on her blog “The world of parenting today doesn’t look like what it did in years past. How we work and how we parent are undergoing massive changes.” Listen in as we discuss more.

What we Talked About

  • Her professional and parenting journey
  • Navigating the world of business as a parent
  • The changing family landscape
  • Women in leadership roles
  • Addressing both parents for sustainable change
  • The increase in workload for both parents when welcoming a child
  • Getting clear on what matters most
  • How she navigates her social life with little ones
  • Benevolent sexism
  • What the future of work for working parents might look like
  • Be accepting of the learning curve both in business and parenting
  • Her personal journey with prenatal depression
