213: Brainfood Live On Air – Ep185 – Job Search & Promotion as a Mother to Be

December 16th, 2022

Recruiter Job Search & Promotion as a Mother-to Be


Continuing our series of ‘true inclusion’, we are turning our attention to the subterranean biases which occur in recruitment. Perhaps the most invidious is the challenge women in particular have – how to manage career and future motherhood. For men, this is substantively different – we never get asked whether we are about to become a parent, nor is parenthood any sort of impediment toward getting a job or promotion; but it is for women.


What can we do about it? This is the topic of Brainfood Live On Air


We are going to explore:


– How to create a safe environment to be transparent with family and career goals

– How to signal such support in hiring process

– What approaches are recommended from candidate POV?

– How to recognise an opportunity is unwelcoming?

– What commitments can employers make to ensure mothers-to-be feel welcome as candidates?

– What is the role of men here?


We’re with Rebecca Collis, Talent Acquisition Manager (AMS), Carly Poulson, People + Culture Partner (Hazy) & Sara Dalsfelt, Head of Community (Adway)
