For as long as women have been in the workforce, they’ve been sold the false dream of “having it all”: an effortless balance between family and career. But “having it all” has amounted to little more than “doing it all,” leaving working mothers burned out, unhealthy, and unsatisfied.

The pandemic laid bare the impossible burden of being a working mother in a workforce designed by and for men. Historic numbers of women left their jobs in 2021, resulting in their lowest workforce participation since 1988. Globally women lost over $800 billion in wages, all while anxiety and depression rates skyrocketed.

In Pay Up: The Future of Women and Work (and Why It’s Different Than You Think), Reshma Saujani, the founder of Girls Who Code, confronts the “big lie” of corporate feminism and presents a plan for innovative corporate leadership, government intervention, and sweeping culture shift. She lays out key steps to transform our workplaces, concrete prescriptions for the public and private sector, and advice for women—especially those in positions of power.

Saujani, also the founder of the Marshall Plan for Moms and bestselling author of Brave, Not Perfect, has spent more than a decade fighting for women and girls’ economic empowerment, working to close the gender gap in the tech sector and advocating for policies moms need to achieve their full potential. She will be in conversation with Sally Buzbee, the Executive Editor of The Washington Post, and previously the Executive Editor and Senior VP of the Associated Press.
