Having-It-All: Inspiring Experience

Чуть меньше месяца назад в компании, с которой сейчас связана большая часть моих professional activities, вышел номер корпоративного журнала под моей редакцией. Поскольку откликов он породил множество, решено было со следующим выпуском не затягивать, а постараться сделать его уже веcной - в марте-апреле 2015 г. Одной из главных тем обозначили женщин, а точнее даже - feminine составляющую в культуре, бизнесе, жизни организации, поведении, отношениях. В связи с этим я активно читаю и перечитываю книги и статьи по данной проблематике, с удовольствием пересматриваю видео Sheryl Sandberg, изучаю феномен 'power couples'. В поиске нового о having-it-all, я, благодаря наводке от коллеги, наткнулась на серию интервью, которыми хочу поделиться. Страницы, увы, удалось выловить только из cash в Google, почему-то сайт, на котором они размещены, больше не активен.

Итак, 5 интервью на тему 'How to Manage a Senior Position and Children':
