The latest from b & C

The Breadwinning & Caregiving Program has a number of exciting developments in the works - we’ll keep you posted here and elsewhere. Here’s a quick roundup of some our highlights from the past week.


We were on the air…

Brigid Schulte appeared on the NBC Nightly News talking about how men and leaders are expanding the work-life debate, in reference to Paul Ryan’s condition that he doesn't work on weekends: “These are issues for everybody. This is what everybody wants. These are not just women or mommy issues.”


And on the newsstands...

Brigid Schulte published a piece in the Washington Post Magazine about the emerging science and contentious history surrounding female sexual desire and the quest for a female Viagra. She also published another installment of her long-running Timehacker series in the Washington Post, which profiles people seeking to change behavior, shift mindsets and find time for what’s most important. Also, she was quoted in a CNBC article about whether corporate “perks” truly benefit workers.


We were forging connections...

Members of the B & C Team met with Norwegian consul and consul general in New York to plan for upcoming events around women leadership and gender equality, so stay tuned. Brigid Schulte appeared on a “Bossed Up” #FierceFall webinar aimed at ambitious, mid-career women about how to craft a sustainable career path.


And winning awards!

Brigid Schulte’s book Overwhelmed: Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time won the Library of Virginia’s literary award for nonfiction and was honored at a gala event at the library in Richmond.
