Workplace Justice

Jul 19, 2022

For so many years, women are forced to choose between balancing the physical and emotional needs of being a new mother and the financial needs of returning to work. 

It’s 2022. This needs to change. 

It’s time to prioritize parental leave by having better systems in place to help new parents transition smoothly, strengthen their families, and continue to build better careers. 

All these are at the core of the new book, The Parental Leave Playbook: 10 Touchpoints to Transition Smoothly, Strengthen Your Family, and Continue Building Your Career. 

Our guests for this episode are authors Dr. Amy Beacom and Sue Campbell of the Center for Parental Leave Leadership. 

In today's conversation, we will cover important topics like: 

  • The Parental Leave Playbook 
  • The 3-phase transition of parental leave 
  • How the Center for Parental Leave Leadership helps families during and beyond the pandemic 
  • Unpacking the holistic approach of the RETAIN Parental Leave Coaching 
  • What you should consider when announcing your pregnancy 
  • Why employers are making a big mistake letting go of parent employees 
  • Is there a conflict between (making a) profit and doing the right thing? 
  • A critical step when transitioning to parental leave  
  • Developing your paper trail and protecting yourself 
  • Helping fathers take parental leave to its fullest

Drawing on over 25 years in executive leadership development and coaching, Amy consults with Fortune 100 companies, international organizations, and working parents, transforming the way our companies and our country engage with the parental leave transition.
