OUR BOOK

I’m pregnant. How is my professional career going?.
“One of the professionals on my team told me that she is going to have a child … quite a topic!”
“You take care of the children and do the housework… I take care of going out to work.”
They are phrases that we usually hear.
Maternity is one of the main barriers to conceiving successful models of integration of the professional and the personal in today’s organizations.
Eight out of ten executives recognize this reality,
and seven out of ten say gender equality
it is not considered a strategic issue.
In this book, Silvina Prekajac – founder director of Giving Birth, the first Argentine consultancy on the subject – provides tools and solutions
to aspire to the maximum potential of professional development
without having to give up the desire to be a mother.
These pages seek to mobilize women who want to be mothers
so that they are empowered in their work,
and those who have already been and seek to turn their career (or motherhood) around. But also to those leaders interested in having women in decision-making positions, and to men who want to work as a team with their partners in pursuit of mutual enrichment.
