Women In Tech Share 5 Helpful Tips On Eliminating Mom Guilt
The momentum surrounding women in the workforce continues to increase despite unparalleled representation loss throughout the pandemic. Bloomberg reports that 77.5% of women between the ages of 25-54 are either working or in the employment market, which is the highest level in reported history. Black women’s workforce representation has increased 2.5% over the past year, tipping past 60%, as their unemployment rates hit a record low 4.2%. Despite the upward momentum, women in the workforce have more to battle than the typical challenges of a widening gender pay gap, mid-career plateaus, occupational segregation, caregiving disparities and the impacts of the gender-unique health woe of menopause. It’s called mom guilt. 70.6% of mothers with children under 18 are working. That's 23.5 million moms. Oftentimes the largest work hurdle for moms is mom guilt; that inner voice that constantly compares mom performance and child needs in terms of physical presence, pushing quantity over quality. Five working moms concur and share advice, tips and wise counsel on how to leave mom guilt where it belongs, behind us.

Applications are open for SWE's Collegiate Leadership Institute (CLI) and Academic Leadership for Women in Engineering (ALWE)!
SWE advocates for the advancement of women engineers at all stages of their careers. The Collegiate Leadership Institute’s overarching goal is to equip collegiate members with the skills, knowledge, and leadership abilities that will enable them to become global leaders in their engineering and technology careers and serve as a future pipeline for leaders in the Society of Women Engineers (SWE). Through virtual year-round programming, CLI aims to motivate, equip, and support SWE collegiate members to successfully transition to the engineering workforce by providing valuable learning opportunities in order to accelerate the success of students entering the engineering and technology workforce. To address the need for more women in academic leadership positions in engineering and foster the professional growth of women in academia, SWE developed the Academic Leadership for Women in Engineering (ALWE) program. The overarching purpose of ALWE is to provide female academics in engineering with tangible skills and knowledge needed to pursue, acquire and gainfully maintain institutional leadership positions at a university. SWE also hopes this program provides women with skills to help them grow personally as leaders. The upcoming ALWE program will begin in August 2023 and conclude in April 2024. ALWE will host 50 professional academic SWE members during the upcoming program. To support the professional development of women in faculty roles, participants who successfully complete the program will receive a registration grant to attend the WE24 Annual Conference.

The key to effective DEI training is measuring behaviour changes
HR leaders everywhere are working to build inclusive cultures so that they can hire and retain diverse talent. Unfortunately, some of the diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) training they bring to their organisations is minimally effective. A recent study of 3,000 DEI training participants conducted by the National Academy of Sciences determined that ‘standalone, one-off diversity training’ commonly used in organisations is unlikely to be effective for promoting workplace equality. Similarly, research published in the Harvard Business Review argues that traditional DEI programs focus too much on raising awareness and promoting the business case for DEI. In other words, they fail to make a real, lasting impact. They help individuals become aware of their biases, but they stop short of helping employees counteract their biases.
