Stop Telling Moms What To Do During a Global Pandemic, with Crystal Ohikhuare

Let me ask you a question, mamas:

When was the last time we told Dads what to do?

Crystal Ohikhuare @thecrystaloh asked this exact question in her recent blog post titled “Stop Telling Moms What to Do During a Global Pandemic,” a guest blog post written on my friend Maria Smith’s Blog Confessions of a Corporate Mom.

And on this episode of the Confessions of a Working Mom Podcast, we chat all things related to being a working mom during a global pandemic, and the immense amount of challenges that has brought to moms around the world.

Moms are exiting the workforce in mass numbers, and Crystal brings to light some life-changing advice for women who are struggling with the decision to stay or go. 

And spoiler alert – You don’t have to quit entirely if you are burnt out and stressed.. You have options!

Crystal is a working mom in Human Resources and Recruiting. She’s held several leadership positions with different organizations and has launched, grown and sold several HR-related businesses. She also co-hosts the podcast @notyourtokenblackgirl – you can find anywhere you tune into podcasts for weekly episodes!

Tune in to this conversation, where we dive deep into the dynamic of working families and how everything changed in the past year, plus what we can do to stay connected to our careers, our passions and create a life by design.

And, if you have a few minutes, I’d be so grateful if you could rate & review the podcast on Apple.
