In a recent article for the Atlantic, Anne-Marie Slaughter–Professor of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University and former Director of Policy and Planning for the U.S. State Department–discusses the need for a cultural shift in the way we perceive and practice the work-life balance of women in America.
“I want you [employers] to realize that unless you make it possible for the women who work for you to balance their work and family in the way they want to–with flexibility, with all sorts of different kinds of options–you are going to loose a huge amount of talent, and that’s not going to be smart for you, for your business, for the society.”
