Working Mothers Venn Diagram | Working Mums | Professionelle

By Nikki Launder

Nikki writes,

“The inspiration for this article has come from the many, many mothers I know who work full time, part time, study, or choose not to be in paid employment. They have children who range from 8 months to 12 years. They all work in professional roles and include lawyers, teachers, doctors, accountants, architects, graphic designers, clinical psychologists, business owners, stay at home mothers and those who have returned to University to study. They have provided me with anecdotes and thoughts on their typical days managing children and work. These have formed the following Venn Diagrams that illustrate our domains”.
