Unapologetically Busy

1 in 4 working moms cry once a week due to the stress of having it all. They attempt to be the perfect mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, employee, and boss. When it is their children who gets the short end of stick, many women feel an overwhelming sense of guilt. Natasha Bowman, does not. Six years ago, she and her husband decided that she would be bread winner and he would be the caregiver. She ditched her guilt and has exceeded in her career…unapologetically… even when she realized she had not idea what school her daughter attended when it was her responsibility to drop her off one morning. This eye-opening, yet controversial speech reveals the truth behind the guilt of the working mother. Natasha advises her audiences to rid themselves of the guilt of being a busy, working mother and embrace the fact that it is impossible to have it all! She also provides her audience for tools for coping with stress, resources for coping, and a good laugh that every working mother (and their male counterparts) can all relate to.


Civility and Respect: The Exception Not the Rule in the American Workplace

Many American workplaces publicize their core values to their employees and external stakeholders which usually include the core value of respect. The reality is that while these values are written on paper, they are not embedded in the culture of the organization. The American employee at all levels are suffering from extreme stress in the workplace due to high expectations, long hours, and often time wages. To add to those typical workplace challenges, many employees are suffering from stress due to being bullied by their boss, a behavior that is often lawful and tolerated by most organizations. In this speech, Natasha Bowman discusses the harmful effects of workplace bullying on the American worker and makes the case as to why we must bring civility and respect back to the workplace.
