One additional comment on corporate America was forwarded to me (thanks David!) from Fast Company. The column is a thoughtful take on how to make sure a workplace is right for you. And it contains this troubling gem:
Find out the take up rate of family policies. In many companies, it never gets above 5%. Why? When everyone believes that there's a price to taking family leave, they don't take it. As one HR director confessed, "They're really just designed to weed out the losers." You may not have children now -- but what happens when you do? Of when elderly parents need you?
More frightening HR honestly. May such companies perish, starved of the brilliance and hard work of those who want the modest goal of balance in their lives.
