What everyone's up to

Had a baby
So happy to have become a mother in 2020 (at the start of the pandemic 😱).

Motherhood is not a job, it is a career. And it can be an incredible career advantage. 

In all industries and at all levels, moms are passed over for new jobs and promotions based on outdated biases of what motherhood means – the motherhood penalty vs the fatherhood bonus. The data tells the story:

  • 69% of US workers say mothers are more likely to be passed up for a new job than other employees
  • 41% view moms in the workplace as less devoted to their work, and 38% judge them for needing a more flexible work schedule
  • On average, men's earnings increased more than 6% on having children, while women's decreased 4% for each child they have – and the gap persists even after controlling for factors like experience, education, hours worked, and spousal incomes
It is time to recognize motherhood for what it really is: an endless source of professional skills. 91% of workers agree moms bring unique skills (agility, flexibility, emotional intelligence, communication skills) to leadership roles – anyone who has ever spent more than 5 minutes with an infant or toddler can understand why.

Graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. Finished my last semester in the middle of quarantine, so the day and night photos of our famous pointy building are a little old.
