Parenthood and Productivity : Truths Revealed


by Julia Gamolina Hooray for working moms! Common misconceptions have been disproved in a recent study from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. Researchers found that over a 30-year career, working mothers outperformed women without children at almost every stage and every task. If that’s not enough, women with at least two children were the most productive, focused, and dependable. The study analyzed more than 10,000 published works on evaluating performance by academic economists – and found that working mothers can multitask better than anyone else. Not surprising, and encouraging for all women in all industries out there!
