The Work Conversation

One of my goals for the New Year was to start the maternity leave conversation with my bosses. Maintaining a healthy balance between caring for an infant, finishing a masters degree, and moving my career forward is a major priority.

I will discuss all of this in more detail when it is resolved, but I did want to note that I have began these discussions with my employer. Oh what fun.

Best of luck! They love you, I'm sure it will work out well for all involved. You've got an S on your chest, you're the snr. acct. exec of steel!

One might think that it would be easier to work this out with a firm that is so in tune with women's issues... but business is business and your absence, no matter how long or short, is going to be painful for them.

I hope that it goes well!

If not, use your superhero powers to change their minds if they disagree with you...
