Taking the Lead: A Four Part Series on WNYC's Note to Self
For four weeks in July 2016, WNYC's Note To Self is telling the story of NEED/DONE a project I started with Leslie Ali Walker. Two years ago we launched a tech idea to help harried working mothers who still want to rise up in their professional ranks.
Why? Because of numbers like these:
4.6 percent of S&P 500 companies have female CEOs
43 percent of highly-skilled women with children leave their jobs voluntarily at some point in their careers
The U.S. is the only developing country that doesn't mandate paid maternity leave. The Family Medical Leave Act gives workers a maximum of 12 weeks off unpaid per year
Almost 70 percent of mothers and over 90 percent of fathers are in the workforce
Caregiving is projected to be the largest occupation in the U.S. by 2020
Only 7 percent of U.S. startups that received at least $20 million in funding have founders who are women
Being a working parent can take its toll. Between school lunches, conference calls, soccer practices, quarterly reviews, sleepovers, and PowerPoint presentations, many of you told us that maintaining your sanity, succeeding professionally, and being a present parent feels nearly impossible.
Our story, masterfully told by Manoush Zomorodi, chronicles our efforts to create a solution.
