Women make up approximately 50% of the labour force and account for approximately 58% of post-secondary graduates. Of the working women who do become mothers, 90% will take a maternity leave. However, according to research conducted by Canada Career Counselling, 36% of new mothers feel that taking maternity leave negatively impacts their opportunity for promotions, career development and career progression.

  • What are some common myths and biases that impact the career development of working mothers?
  • What is the impact of maternity leave on career development from the employee and employer perspective?
  • What strategies can be used by managers and HR leaders to support the career development of working mothers?
  • How can organizations and employees redefine career progression in a way that supports a variety of careers?
