23rd September 2020

Biz is joined by Deputy Editor of Working Mother, Audrey Goodson Kingo. We review the statistics on what the pandemic has done to working parents, specifically working mothers. It’s not looking great for women in the workforce, but there is some good news about equity in the home. We are reminded that making choices is really hard right now and that everyone is doing their best. Plus, Theresa stops by for a genius and fail!
