Fascinated by the latest research from Talking Talent, 'Up, Out or Different', discussing some of the many challenges that face women in the workplace.
48% of women surveyed highlighted the 'maternity transition' as a critical pinch point in their careers. The survey highlighted that women in their 20s and 30s without children also view it as a key pinch point which is particularly interesting, highlighting the need to get more support and resources to those women who are contemplating how to fit a family into their lives. The report also found that 'networking' was the second highest skill sought to enable significant career progression, after self-belief/confidence. These findings underline why citymothers was launched - to provide a forum for women going through (or thinking about going through), this transition, to have fun, meet like-minded people and find peer support.
