Parental Leave—There’s a Playbook? with Amy Beacom & Sue Campbell
Show Notes

In this episode, we talk about parental leave and how it impacts working parents. You get to hear from two women experts who built a company and wrote the book to help working parents like you. And there’s so much to talk about that we’re breaking the conversation into two episodes. So, eavesdrop on Part One.

Their company is the Center for Parental Leave Leadership, and the book they co-authored is titled The Parental Leave Playbook: Ten Touchpoints to Transition Smoothly, Strengthen Your Family, and Continue Building Your Career.

Dr. Amy Beacom is the founder and CEO of the Center for Parental Leave Leadership, the first full-service consultancy in the US to focus exclusively on parental leave. She conceived of and began developing the field of parental leave coaching and consulting in 2006. Drawing on over 25 years in executive leadership development and coaching, Amy consults with Fortune 100 companies, international organizations, and working parents to transform how our companies and country engage with the parental leave transition.

Sue Campbell is a writer, author, and coach who has worked with the Center for Parental Leave Leadership since its early days, helping to communicate the transformative impact of its core mission. Her writing is often focused on issues important to parents, and has been published in many outlets, including Prevention, Good Housekeeping, Scary Mommy, and Mamalode.
