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

I hope you joined us last week for Part One of my conversation with Dr. Amy Beacom. We talked about the issues and opportunities working parents face when navigating parental leave within their careers. If you haven’t, be sure to check it out.

We talked about how states and companies implement parental leave policies—if they even exist—and how companies and working parents put parental leave into practice.

Amy shared the book she co-authored with Sue Campbell, The Parental Leave Playbook: Ten Touchpoints to Transition Smoothly, Strengthen Your Family and Continue Building Your Career, which talks about the 3 phases of the parental leave transition: Preparing for leave, during leave, and returning from leave. And last week, we dove into the preparing phase.

We jump right in and talk about the other two phases in part two.

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. 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.
