9780074713822: Careers and Motherhood, Challenges and Choices: How to Sucessfully Manage Your Career Through Pregnancy and Motherhood: How to Successfully Manage Your Career Through Pregnancy and Motherhood

In Careers and Motherhood, Challenges and Choices Karen Mitchell interviews a range of women from a variety of professional backgrounds who have faced the reality of balancing career and motherhood.

Careers and Motherhood, Challenges and Choices presents an overview of the key issues a woman may face in her lifetime related to having both a career and motherhood, and advises of tips, techniques and strategies to deal with each of these issues.

It offers insightful and compelling recommendations for women in search of practical and proven ways to manage a career, and capitalise on the use of resources available before and after becoming a parent.

There is a significant debate and coverage in the media about these issues and yet there are very few books, published either in Australia or overseas, that acknowledges each of these issues. There are books which might cover a single issue, there are also books which discuss the difficulties of trying to have it all and there is significant information available on motherhood, pregnancy and birth. Yet there is nothing that really says to the career woman "Here are the issues you might have to contend with and this is how you might do it."

This book presents women discussing their remarkable experiences and the consequences of their decisions. How they balance profession, family and identity. The results are impressive and intensely personal.

This book combines current views, opinions and advice and results in a very practical, informative and readable guide for women who deal with these key issues - chronologically presented from pre-pregnancy through to motherhood. It also includes the views of senior executives, recruitment specialists and others who influence the careers of women. A special feature is the unique voices of teenage children of career-mums, who talk about the impact on their upbringing.

From the Publisher:

  • There is currently absolutely no text in the Australian market place which addresses this topic.

    There are as yet no publications published overseas that address this topic directly.

    The book targets individuals as well as workplaces and therefore has a wide target audience.

    Current political and socio-cultural debate in the media on this issue is extensive and should make publicity opportunities easy (eg paid maternity leave, breast-feeding at work etc)

  • About the Author:

    Karen Mitchell has a Bachelor of Applied Science, a Grad Dip in Business and a Masters in Commerce. She worked as a management consultant in the area of change, culture and leadership with a global company. Karen has worked with people at executive level through to shop floor.
