I gave this talk at the IEEE Women In Engineering Leadership conference in San Francisco on May 3, 2014.
Title: Leadership and Parenting: Two Great Skills that Go Great Together
Summary: As a tech executive and a working mom, I found that I became a stronger leader because of the parenting skills I learned, and a better parent because of the leadership training I received. And thank goodness! Like many working parents, I often felt swamped raising children just when my career was growing in both responsibility and complexity. By using my parenting and leadership skills in tandem, I was able to relish my busy life and be happier at both work and home.
