Working mothers are subject to "the maternal bias," which is the conscious or unconscious perception that a working mother cannot be effective in both career and motherhood.
When a mother excels at work, people wonder how she manages to do so while simultaneously being effective at home. When a mother excels as a parent, others may assume she does not thrive at work. This bias has the potential to be undermining and demoralizing.
Moms can respond to these challenges effectively by practicing self-care, setting boundaries, and communicating their needs to their partners or supportive family and friends. They can also discuss their difficulties with their children. Working mothers confront additional challenges in terms of their mental health and jobs. And, while these challenges are numerous, the benefits to employment, including financial rewards, meaning, community, and a sense of contribution drive moms to continue in their career and thrive. However, moms sometimes need to redefine their own expectations and priorities. After all, children don't want ideal mothers; they want mothers who love them.
During this episode we are welcoming Ghazal Baghdadi, an educational Consultant, Founder of “علمتني كنز” and an activist in the support of women and children. She will speak about her experiences as a mother and a successful entrepreneur, as well as how she managed and balanced her job and motherhood.Special أم
