Working Mothers Who Make It All Work. How Successful Working Parents Keep Their Careers On Track. Life is not always easy for working parents.
Managers sometimes treat people as less committed to their jobs just because they have kids, and school hours seldom align with workplace ones.

I was raised by a wonderful mother in the rough and tumble public housing projects on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Many people told me I had three strikes against me: I was black. I was a girl. And I was poor. Mom didn’t see it that way. None of those paths felt quite right for me and I began to dream of becoming an engineer. It was my first “lean back, lean in” crossroads. My life since then has been a series of lean in moments: taking an internship with Xerox in upstate New York, going to an Ivy League school for a graduate degree, signing on with Xerox, and climbing the ladder to the top. Dreams do come true, but not without the help of others, a good education, a strong work ethic, and the courage to lean in. Why PepsiCo CEO Indra K. Nooyi Can't Have It All.

"Ah, the $20 million dollar question," Katie Bugbee, Care.com Senior Managing Editor and Global Parenting Expert, told The Huffington Post. "We really want to be super mom. We want to be excellent at our jobs; we want to be excellent in our relationships; we want to be an excellent friend, an excellent wife or partner; and we want to be an excellent mom. Care.com polled 991 working moms for its 2014 Tipping Point Survey and found that 80 percent of moms feel stressed about balancing childcare, work, home and relationships -- which makes sense if you consider that these women reported spending 80 hours on home responsibilities in addition to work.
85 Broads. Sallie Krawcheck on 85 Broads and the trappings of corporate life. 85 Broads owner Sallie Krawcheck speaks at the Carolina Women in Business event at the University of North Carolina on Nov. 8, 2013.
(Jena McGregor/Washington Post) Sallie Krawcheck has never been afraid to speak her mind. Once the subject of a Fortune cover story that posited she may be "the last honest analyst," the former CEO of Sanford Bernstein and head of Smith Barney and Merrill Lynch rose to Wall Street fame for her tough calls on stocks amid an era of conflicts of interest. Her 2008 exit from Citi, where she ran the wealth management group, came shortly after she pushed the bank to help clients who'd lost money on investments that had been sold as low risk — a position she says was at odds with her boss's. And now that she has moved beyond the financial services executive suite and purchased the women's network 85 Broads, Krawcheck seems even more free to speak openly.
