Programme participants will be given practical advice as to how to manage their personal finances, which is of utmost importance in managing the family budget.
“At UniCredit Bulbank we realise that it is a great challenge to combine two roles into one – the role of a working mother and the one of a mother. We believe that this is a task that can be tackled. This is why we created Mothers in Business WoMum Academy. We would like to share our experience with mothers, making their return to the business environment more easily. We believe that motherhood has developed valuable skills which can be applied in a business environment. We are ready to welcome mothers in UniCredit Bulbank’s team”, says Federico Bedini, Head of Human Resources Department, UniCredit Bulbank.
According to an international study conducted by Harvard Business School, adult kids of working moms are high achievers at work. This is especially valid for mothers who have daughters. The study results revealed that the daughters of employed mothers are more likely to have jobs themselves, are more likely to hold supervisory responsibility at those jobs and earn higher wages. Study results also showed that maternal employment doesn’t affect kids’ happiness in adulthood. Harvard Business School Professor Kathleen McGinn hopes the findings bring a big sigh of relief for guilt-ridden mothers who either have to hold down a job to make ends meet or simply choose to work outside the home while raising their children.
“People still have this belief that when moms are employed, it’s somehow detrimental to their children,” says Harvard Business School Professor Kathleen McGinn. “So our finding that maternal employment doesn’t affect kids’ happiness in adulthood is really important. As we gradually understand that our children aren’t suffering, I hope the guilt will go away”. “When women choose to work, it’s a financial and personal choice. Women should make that choice based on whether they want or need to work, not based on whether they are harming their children—because they are not.” Mothers in Business WoMum Academy aims to encourage mothers to make an informed choice.
The training sessions will consist of several modules each on a different topic. The first topic was: Communication Skills: The Art of Convincing People. A team of specialists discussed why it is important to have public speaking skills, behave confidently and communicate our message in a way that can be understood by our interlocutors not only in a business environment but also in our daily lives.
