Opinion: What I learned taking maternity leave twice as CEO of Stitch Fix

This post was originally published on this site

I took two 16-week maternity leaves as CEO of Stitch Fix. I was out of the office the whole time, delegating the role of steering my public company to our President and COO. I received praise for modeling parental leave for our employees while helping other young, female CEOs reimagine how they could build a family. While I was proud that Stitch Fix was leading the way, it also led me to question our leave policy and think more critically about gender equality roles within the household and the perceptions, expectations and values we pass on to our children.

What do you think?
