21st May 2019 • Parents At Work Podcast • Parents At Work
With 27% of men and 49% of women experiencing discrimination upon returning from parental leave, and 48% of companies in Australia not embracing flexible working practices, Flexism shows itself as a very real and extremely determinantal issue within the workplace.
This month, Emma Walsh interviews Vanessa Vanderhoek, founder of Flexible Working Day, and discusses Vanessa’s journey to how she started her advocacy project and why.
Emma and Vanessa consider the benefits of flexible working for both individuals and companies, and explore the impact Flexible Working Day has had on overcoming Flexism in the working environment.
