Episode 58: Helping Professional Women Return To Work With Untapped Potential

One of the biggest challenges facing the blitz-like pace of today’s modern economy is how to re-integrate talented and educated people who have taken time out from the workforce. These challenges are especially pronounced for mothers who leave the workforce to focus on their family, only to find it difficult to pivot back into full-time employment.
