It’s not often I truly feel that a guest changes my paradigm on the spot – but this is an exception.
Did you know that working mothers are 50% LESS likely to be promoted than women without children? Or that only 1 in 5 senior executives is a woman?
Have you ever realized that working moms are judged when they leave work early to tend to their children AND when they stay at work late (and “neglect” their families)? The truth is, we have a work environment that is not conducive to being a parent and women are the ones who tend to suffer the most.
This week on the show we have a chance to talk with Mary Beth Ferrante about the struggles that working mothers face, and the ways they can get what they deserve.
Mary Beth is a former Senior Vice President for a Fortune 100 Firm who has made the successful transition to a certified career coach with the International Coach Federation. She is trained in Organizational, Relationship & Systems Coaching (ORSC). In addition, she has chaired national women’s organizations and been on the Board of Directors of the Junior League of Los Angeles. Today, she works with new moms (and dads!), managers and organizations to best support new parents, discover what inspires and drives new parents in their careers.

We made it. You made it! Here’s part 2 of our listener questions and ‘year in review.’
Quick recap. Before we closed out 2017, we sent an email to our newsletter subscribers asking what questions they would like answered. This is part 1 of Chris and I attempting to answer those questions. It was the first time in years that we recorded under the same roof. How crazy is that?!?!
WARNING: there was “light” drinking while recording so expect complete openness and a dash of silly.
We want to hear from you, the listener!
