As we approach a post-pandemic world, it's important to recognize that women continue to encounter barriers in the workforce. One of the most significant challenges is balancing career and family responsibilities, particularly for women who take maternity leave. Once the leave is over, women may be faced with difficult choices regarding whether to return to work or stay at home.
Let us explore some reasons why women may choose or need to go back to work after maternity leave.
It's important to recognize that every woman's situation is unique, and there is no right or wrong decision when it comes to going back to work after maternity leave. Whether a woman chooses to return to work or stay at home, it's important that she feels supported and empowered in her decision.
As employers and colleagues, we can do our part by advocating for policies that support working mothers, such as flexible work arrangements, parental leave, and on-site child care. By creating a more inclusive and supportive work environment, we can help ensure that all women have the opportunity to succeed both at work and at home.
If you are a woman who has taken maternity leave and is considering returning to work after a break, we have a program 'Women Return in Tech' where you can submit your resume and gain access to a network of professionals who can help you find the best opportunities that match your skills and career goals.

Remember, you don't have to make this decision alone, and with the right support, you can achieve success both at work and at home!
