Did you know that only 2.1 percent of all working parents both work full-time? For me this number sounded incredibly low – but looking closely at my own experience and what I have seen and heard from other working moms, it actually comes as no surprise that most women withdraw, often reluctantly, from their until then successful careers. It’s the year 2021 and we are still dealing with a severe parents-career-gap. How is this possible?
At first, it seems like such a simple question, but for me the definition of what a “career” really is has changed throughout the jobs I have had so far in my life. Four jobs and four very different angles on a goal that almost everybody strives for.
