Power Moms: How Executive Mothers Navigate Work and Life
A record number of American women are reaching the executive suite, and a significant proportion of women now running major U.S. corporations have children. Yet despite this tremendous progress, working mothers still face numerous challenges at work and home—struggles that the Covid-19 pandemic aggravated.

In her latest book, Power Moms: How Executive Mothers Navigate Work and Life, longtime Wall Street Journal career columnist Joann S. Lublin compares two generations of women—boomers and GenXers—to examine how each navigates the emotional and professional challenges involved in juggling their managerial careers and families.

In Power Moms, Ms. Lublin shares her own experiences combining work and motherhood alongside those of 86 executive mothers from the first trailblazing generation—typically in their sixties—and their younger counterparts, who are under forty-five. Ms. Lublin raised two children while rising to management news editor of the Journal, sharing its Pulitzer Prize in 2003, and inaugurating its career advice column. She also blazed trails—as one of its first female journalists and among the first to take maternity leave and resume work. In 2018, she won the highest accolade in business journalism, the Gerald Loeb Lifetime Achievement Award.

Ms. Lublin will be in conversation with Suzanne Muchin, co-founder of Bonfire, a talent development accelerator headquartered in Chicago.

This event will be recorded and available later on the FAN website and our YouTube channel.
