Vita: As a speaker, Sarah engages her audience, bringing all her experiences as an employee, as a working mom, and as an entrepreneur, while vulnerably sharing her own story and inspiring others with her purpose and passion for building better workplaces for parents.

“This is my job – every day I talk with working dads and moms about what challenges them, about what they want and need to be able to succeed in combining work and family. I talk with Employers and ERG’s* about their goals and hurdles. I hear the good and the bad. I have a thousand stories to share – and I want the world to hear them – not just so that companies and employees can learn from these experiences, but so that we will know we are not alone.”

Vita: Rachael is an American living in Switzerland for the last 8 years. Her background is primarily in the US Healthcare industry in a variety of different consulting and leadership positions including CEO of a national healthcare billing company. Rachael has been the co-founder of parents@work in Zurich since 2021. parents@work helps companies to build internal peer coaching teams for parents and line managers. She‘s passionate about this work because the transition to being a working parent wasn’t easy for her and the challenges heavily impacted her decision to step away from her career for more than 5 years. Rachael believes that the more companies support all parents (dads and moms), and build family friendly work cultures, the more quickly and more positively we will impact gender equality.
