How I Continue to Redefine Gender Roles as I Work at Home With My Kids, According to a Director
As Director, HRBP & Programs at Squarespace, Carole Lamb had many people relying on her as the workplace shifted into ‘the new normal.’ While the thoughtfulness and hard work of her team — from the executive level to her direct reports — allowed the company to move “seamlessly” to remote work, like many of us, Lamb struggled with the reality of working during COVID-19.
“I read an article recently that said ‘you are not working from home; you are at home, trying to work, in a global pandemic,’” Lamb told Fairygodboss. “Something about that phrase has reorganized my mindset and reset my expectations.”
Recently, Lamb shared the daily schedule that helps her sustain the work her team is managing to both prepare for the eventual return to the office and keep current processes afloat. She also offered advice for working mothers who are facing the difficulties of parenting while working day in and day out, and how she’s continuing to redefine gender roles and spend her time where she wants to.
