I have often wondered how women juggle professional roles with being a mother and wife. In my own life, I have not managed to meet many female leaders who have shared their secret to fostering strong relationships within their families while also building successful careers. This is no reflection of a dearth of such women but the fact that I have not had the privilege of asking such intimate questions of successful women and also hints at the lack of women in senior leadership (despite many women dominating junior roles in professional industries). As a peacebuilder and bridge builder, I was delighted to come across Madeline Albright’s talk about her experience as a woman and a diplomat. Unfortunately she did not get into how she managed to juggle family like with professional life, but I still think its worth sharing.
