Why is maternity leave, policy and other women's issues not important as compared to Juneteenth, coed bathrooms, and all the other issues in the media today? Women are half the population and at an average of 2.1 kids per woman, these are major issues. Are we not vocal enough? Organized enough? Not a serious voting demographic? Too grateful things are better in this generation? What is it? Why does 50% of the population matter less compared to these smaller marginal groups?

I was always a top performer, lots of drive, lots of energy and enthusiasm. Loved the challenges of leading and inspiring the team. A serious health issue hit me. I’m coming back slowly, but I feel I can’t keep the pace anymore. I now I’ll get better, but my “timeline” to heal does not match what the company needs. I’m planning to step aside and take another role. I confess I’m heartbroken and struggling to cope with this loss. Therapy is helping, but do you have any words of advice?
