My company recently put in a nursing room/mother's room but
My company recently put in a nursing room/mother's room but it was designed in a way that the majority of the room is fogged glass - except one strip that runs right at sitting level that was left as transparent glass. I don't think it was done intentionally (men designed the room) but I now have to put up sheets of paper to cover the transparent strip of glass. Any idea on how to address this with my (all male) management team?
What are you wanting to achieve? You say that you have put paper up in the room. Are you wanting a permanent solution?
How have you addressed other issues with your male management team in the past which was similar to this? If that approach worked try it again.
Personally I think honesty is the best policy and I'd just say that it's great that they have added a nursing room and is it possible to have some 'fogged' paper put in there permanently would be great!
I've always prioritized my career, but I'm starting to feel like I won't feel as committed to it once I have my baby. Should I be worried about losing my ambition?
I recently had a child and worked out an arrangement with my manager to work from home 1-2 days/week. I'm the only female on my team and none of the co-workers have a similar arrangement. There have been discreet comments made about my schedule (mostly in a joking way) but it still feels uncomfortable. Has anyone else ran into this?
Does anyone have any recommendations for a book or checklist of true must-have things for when baby comes? There are so many cute and new products for me to consider but I really want to keep it to the bare minimum and not sure what are frills and what are "must haves", e.g. how many pump accessories do you really need? I feel like a hands-free bra is a must but do people buy more than one?
It's been really hard for me to let go and leave the baby to go to the office since coming back from maternity leave. However, I know I don't want to quit my job and stay at home. Any advice to make this transition easier?
