"It is about women having the confidence to believe they can do it" – CEO Sarah Day on BBC Radio Wales
Our very own Chief Executive, Sarah Day, was interviewed today on Good Morning Wales on BBC Radio Wales about how life has changed for women after the Suffragette movement.
Along with her mother Fiona Conlon and her daughter, Jessica, she discussed how to juggle work and family. She explained how lucky she was to be able to start a family and carry on working, whereas her mother had to put her career as a social worker on hiatus to raise her and her sister. While family support is key, Sarah also emphasised how creating a culture of open practice here at Practice Solutions has allowed her to work and have a family life, “to do it all” as she put it.
Reflecting on how things have changed for women and on her daughter’s wish to become a psychologist and work for the army, she concludes:
“It is about women having the confidence to believe they can do it, that they can be listened to and they just have to speak up and have self-belief.
You know I listen to Jess now and I think she knows that she can do it and that’s the most important thing for me. The world is her oyster and she believes that. She believes that at 10 and I’m at 40 and maybe I start to believe it now, and I think that’s the future right there. May she be a psychologist. May she be in the army. It’s all to play for.”
