It’s becoming increasingly difficult to be a working mother during the pandemic.
More women are facing tough decisions to put their careers on the back burner- to focus on taking care of their children at home.
A new report says 1 in 4 women are considering put their careers on-hold to care for or school their children.
President and CEO of TEMPO Milwaukee Jennifer Dirks says the pandemic has been devastating for working women. She says they are seeing this dilemma among their emerging women leaders group.
“These are women that are middle career. They are first time moms. Many of them have children that are toddlers or in first, second, third grades and they are also working full-time. So they are being forced to work from home like many of us but then also be balance it with what comes with being a mother, so childcare, full-time gig, and it’s not working for many,” said Dirks.
