For the last two weeks, my colleagues and I have been running a discussion topic on professional development on the International Librarians Network blog. Yesterday, we published a post pulling together the voices of a number of women we work with on the topic of juggling life, kids, work and professional development.
It’s about a bunch of women who are librarians, information professionals, or academics in the LIS space but it’s a post that has value for women in a multitude of different professions, so I wanted to share it here. Go read it now, whether you’ve got kids or not, because this stuff is not easy and I think it gets just that little bit easier if we’re all in it together.
Although we didn’t explicitly talk about, this post reminds me that
behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back
(Quote via the Instagram feed of entrepreneur, author and speaker Lisa Messenger.)
These women are a big part of my tribe.
Thanks Lyndelle, Katya, Kathleen, Clare, and Kate for sharing about your experience.
