Working mothers aren’t weak. They are assets you want in your company, in your investment portfolio, and in your corner. There is copious academic research showing the benefits of working mothers on families, the benefits to companies who give women longer and more flexible parental leave, and even research that shows women with multiple children actually perform better at work than those with none or one. Unfortunately, there’s also copious academic research and evidence to show that the so-called “Maternal Wall” is the largest unconscious bias women face in the workplace. 79% of women are less likely to be hired if they have children and are half as likely to be promoted. Mothers get $11,000 less in salary on average and are held to higher punctuality standards and performance standards. 40% of Silicon Valley women said they felt the need to speak less about their family to be taken more seriously. Many have been told that having a second child would cost them a promotion. As more women start their own businesses and companies like Netflix, Facebook, Apple, and Google implement more parent-friendly policies, some of this is changing. The most important barrier to change is the way women think of themselves after becoming mothers. This book will argue and demonstrate that the strongest, most lucrative, and most ambitious time of a woman’s career can easily happen after she sees a plus sign on a pregnancy test. Read Less
