Transcripts - Lean In or Opt Out Survey Results

  • 1. “ My husband left his job when I had the opportunity to become full-time and begin my career in Human Resources. He has been a stay at home dad raising and homeschooling our boys for almost 4 years now. My career took flight, my salary has doubled, and we both confidently know that our decision 4 years ago was the right one! POLL Did you opt out of a better paying job or more high-powered career in order to fulfill family obligations?
  • 2. “ After clerking for a year, I started at a large international law firm. I proposed to bill 75% of the required hours for 75% of the pay. I still wanted to be a partner, and more than anything I wanted to be viewed as smart and capable. Now a 15 year lawyer with three children 16- years-old and younger, I still bill 65-80% of the hours partners are expected to bill, I make a very good income, and I have an unparalleled level of flexibility that allows me to come and go as I please. POLL Did you opt out of a better paying job or more high-powered career in order to fulfill family obligations?
  • 3. “ I believe it is so important that my boys see powerful and career-driven women in their lives and fathers who support that by working as full partners. I believe we build a foundation of respect in our home by how my husband and I treat each other and showing our boys that men and women should operate as a team. I am a better mother, partner and individual for having found some of my self fulfillment and worth outside the home. POLL Did you opt out of a better paying job or more high-powered career in order to fulfill family obligations?
  • 4. “ I have now found a job where I can balance both work and home — finding a career with growth opportunities and a culture (and boss) that know how important family is. I [became] a consultant, which accommodates the flexibility of being a mom and having a career. POLL Did you opt out of a better paying job or more high-powered career in order to fulfill family obligations?
  • 5. “ I left the workforce for about a year after my first child was born. For the next 7 years I worked part-time in my field and continued to build my skills, knowledge, expertise, and network. It was not always easy balancing work and home life, but it was worthwhile. POLL Did you opt out of a better paying job or more high-powered career in order to fulfill family obligations?
  • 6. POLL Did you opt out of a better paying job or more high-powered career in order to fulfill family obligations? I’m a stay at home wife and do my best work in the kitchen!
