Designing the Future of Working Parenthood

The pandemic has put the challenges faced by working parents squarely in view. For many mothers the imbalance between career and home has been exacerbated. On the other hand, greater work flexibility has been a boon for some families and companies have benefited from the increase in productivity. Where do we go from here? What learnings do we take with us? What needs to change? What should the future of work look like for working parents? How can we ‘change’ work to support greater equity in the workforce? Let’s walk through how we can co-create a future of work that works for working parents.
