Baby In The Boardroom: Online Workshop This Month
Jul 08, 2022 3:11 pm
It's been a few weeks since I last wrote to you.
We've been riding the 'long allergies or is it a summer cold?' / end of school year / start of summer camps / COVID positive / isolating at home rollercoaster for the past month. So this newsletter took a break and I've been doing my best to keep things 'normalish' at home!
Maybe it's because of the connections I have, the stories they post and the issues they advocate for but for a 'summer break' season it doesn't seem like a vacation it is more of a breaking point.
Between the lack of affordable childcare, the childcare which Government says will become more affordable but not everyone or every organization qualifies for, the changes to legal matters affecting women's bodies and their reproductive rights, the continued discrimination in business and political settings toward women, their bodies and their children...it is a lot right now.
There always has been a lot to understand, digest, speak out against, campaign for and work to change but the 'return to the office', 'keep your kids out of parliamentary proceedings' and 'business as usual' amidst legal changes which affect people's daily lives and future plans, illustrates how much there is to be done for human rights, caregivers and women in general.
WHAT CAN INDIVIDUALS DO?
- Donate to local funds and grassroots organizations*
- Get loud and visible but protest safely*
- Join a protest in your neighbourhood
- Participate in politics and sign up to learn more about running
- Learn about supporting other women to run in a political election campaign
- Look after yourself – caregiving is tiring and constant (often unpaid) work, but it is important to also care for your needs as you provide your emotional, mental and physical labour to others

In addition to the links above, I've listed a few upcoming community events and resources below, hopefully I will connect with you at some point over the coming months.
Stay well and look after yourself, I hope you have a restful weekend and I'll be back in your inbox next Friday with a roundup of parent-friendly business news, events and opportunities.
