The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds, and the pessimist fears this is true. – James Branch Cabell
The reality is that there are quite a lot of smart women out there who are destined to be part of the workplace while at the same time driven enough to make their families a priority.
These women have had great careers and continue to have and update their knowledge and skills that would genuinely add value to organizations, industries, markets and society.
Some state that women can’t ‘have it all’. However, no one really ‘wants it all’, but doesn’t everyone want the best of all worlds? When will women, who have competitive skill sets and knowledge, have both a career and the flexibility to be a good parent as well? When will they be able to excel on both fronts for the sake of humanity as they empower the leaders of tomorrow?
