Unpacking the Mother’s Load: Motherhood, Leadership, and Striving for Equity

December 3 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Sponsored by Cigna

Many are required to navigate the cultural paradox of a career and full-time motherhood. As more mothers than ever receive advanced degrees, progress in their careers, and reach top leadership positions within the region, we must ask, are we closer to reaching equity? How does the “motherhood penalty” still affect the earning capacity and professional growth for women in the Hartford region?

The physiology and mental stamina that motherhood demands can compound with the pressure of work performance. What are the economic repercussions for failing to support the many dimensions of motherhood well-being? What is the business impact for failing to retain and support mothers? What is the invisible mother’s load and does it impede equity?

Join us as we connect for a panel discussion with Andrea Barton Reeves, CEO of CT Paid Leave Authority and Catherine Flavin, Founder and CEO of LeaderMom/ Whole Leader, to inform participants on the opportunities and challenges surrounding this issue. We aim to create community among those gathered for this topic and to spark discussions that will inspire changes in current business practices.
