Mothers in the boardroom – Combining children and career | DW Documentary

Kids or a career – these days, mothers shouldn’t have to choose between the two. For women living in countries with access to education and training, combining both is a completely natural thing. But working mothers are still coming up against obstacles.

In this film, 10 women provide insights into their lives as company bosses – and mothers.
They’re CEOs, heads of department, founders – all in senior positions. Not that this makes it easy for them to take maternity leave or decide to have a child in a world still dominated by men. There’s always the risk that they will lose their position, and finding a temporary replacement isn’t always straightforward. But anyone who can take care of 150 employees and two to five children can surely rise to the challenge – right?

The documentary shows where the stumbling blocks lie to this day. But also, the opportunities to overcome them.
