This Is How We Do It

Author: Carol Evans

Year Published: 2006

Description: In This Is How We Do It: The Working Mothers' Manifesto, author Carol Evans illuminates the successful and rewarding side of mixing motherhood and career ambitions from the perspective of women who either need or choose to work outside of the home.  Its conclusions—that it is possible to balance family and work responsibilities and derive satisfaction from both—are drawn from firsthand accounts and research, as well as 25 years of wisdom gleaned from readers of and contributors to Working Mother magazine, which Evans helped found in 1978.

Recommended by:

'We want to create a workplace where parenthood is seen as such an important component of life that companies and our society will create as many different models of success as necessary in order for moms—and dads, too—to be both good parents and good workers.'
