How working moms can rise to the C-suite


MPW Insider is one of several online communities where the biggest names in business answer timely career and leadership questions. Today’s answer for: How can women rise to the C-suite? is written by Tracy Brady, VP of Agency Communications for Hill Holliday.

I am fortunate to work at a company run by a woman, and not just any woman. She’s been a force at our ad agency for over thirty years, and as many of your readers probably know, Karen Kaplan rose from receptionist to Chairman and CEO.

A lot has happened in my life over these days. Raunak has finally got his 1st Bike. Now he eats on Bike, drinks on Bike, and even takes his Bike to the washroom with him. Also, he has started playing hide and seek with his grandma. Here are few pictures of him: –



Will share more about him and my family soon!!!
