Tara on managing a personal life and a career
Yes, you need to give more women the ability to step into that field, but then how do you support them once they’re in? Because that’s where it’s really tricky.
Early in my career, it was extremely difficult managing my personal life and my career. I didn’t have the best support mechanisms in place and always felt torn between my career and raising a family.
There was actually a time I considered quitting or working part-time to lessen the load and stress. I’m glad I didn’t.
We have to figure out ways to make it more possible for women to work and raise a family at the same time. That cannot just fall on women anymore if we really want to empower them and help raise them up in leadership.
