4 months - after I was confident I was past the first trimester and comfortable to share. There’s no right answer - you do what makes you feel comfortable.

HR, as soon as you know. A bunch of employment disability laws kick in and give you extra protections. Engagement team depends on your team. I had a fellow director who never explicitly said she was.

Ladies, how would you have responded? I was hanging out with a friend and her boyfriend when he suddenly goes “Now that all companies practice gender equality what is the need for women specific conventions like Grace Hopper. What if there were male specific conventions/conferences like that? How would that make you feel? “ I was very drunk and not proud of how I responded. I basically told him off and recounted all the instances where I have been at a disadvantage because of my gender.
