Pressing ON as a Tech Mom: How Tech Industry Mothers Set Goals, Define Boundaries and Raise the Bar for Success (Paperback)
Becoming a leader in the "bro culture" of technology is a challenge for any capable woman-but it can be even more treacherous for mothers. Few women understand this better than Emilia M. D'Anzica and Sabina M. Pons, the respective founder and principal consultant at the management consulting firm Growth Molecules.
Upon comparing stories about raising children while working in tech, D'Anzica and Pons wondered: what would it take for their male-dominated industry to start appreciating working mothers?
The result of their conversations is Pressing ON as a Tech Mom, a first-of-its-kind guidebook for mothers who want to thrive in tech.
Distilling wisdom from interviews with more than 300 tech industry leaders who are moms themselves, D'Anzica and Pons have assembled the ultimate list of tips, strategies and resources for tech mothers trying to balance their family lives along with their career aspirations.
Though the industry can be hostile to ambitious mothers, Pressing ON as a Tech Mom offers them helpful strategies and calls on male allies to support them in challenging workplace sexism. In the process, D'Anzica and Pons present the hopeful future of a tech world that views mothers as assets precisely because of their identities and not in spite of them.
