They know how to add value to their circles. They know how to contribute to their communities. Their secret?

What the workplace will look like in 2030
Financial Post
Will the workplace in 2030 resemble the workplace of today — characterized by declining productivity and engagement, stress, overwork and mental health issues? If so, that could very well spell disaster.

Harvard Business Review
As researchers who have spent more than 20 years studying professional women, we have watched with interest the recent surge in attention paid to women's careers, work-family conflict and the gender gap in leadership. Among the most visible contributions to this public conversation have been Anne-Marie Slaughter's 2012 Atlantic article "Why Women Still Can't Have it All" and Sheryl Sandberg's book "Lean In," both of which ignited fierce public debate.

The Washington Post
Ladies, are you leaning in? Good. But once you've successfully tilted forward, your mental health could suffer.

At the same time, having job authority slightly decreased these symptoms in men.

The New York Times
Women are not equally represented at the top of corporate America because of the basic facts of motherhood: Even the most ambitious women scale back at work to spend more time on child care.
