When a top CEO quits to be a better dad it’s a giant leap forward for women execs

当高级CEO辞职为了成为更好的父亲,对女性高管来说这个一个巨大的飞跃。

MongoDB’s Max Schireson knew he couldn’t have it all, and so he quit his busy executive role.

MongoDB’s Max Schireson 知道他不可能兼顾全部,所以他选择辞掉工作繁忙的高管职位。

When Today Show host Matt Lauer sat down with General Motors’ GM 0.12% CEO Mary Barra in late June, he asked the automaker's first female leader:

在去年6月,今日之秀主持人马特·劳尔采访通用汽车公司总裁玛丽·巴拉就曾问过这位汽车制造商的第一位女性领导者:

You said in an interview not long ago that your kids said they’re going to hold you accountable for one job, and that is being a mom. Given the pressure at General Motors, can you do both well?

不久前你在某采访中提到你的孩子只要你对一个工作负责,那就是当一个母亲。那么你能很好地处理工作与孩子双方的压力吗?

Barra graciously answered the question, telling Lauer that she has a great team, a wonderful family and a supportive husband.

巴拉很巧妙地回答了劳尔的这个问题,她说她的工作团队很棒,家庭生活很美好,她的丈夫也很支持她。

Notably, she didn’t turn that question back on Lauer to ask how he handles his demanding work schedule at NBC and still manages to be a good father.

很显然,巴拉没有反问劳尔他是怎么安排好NBC(全国广播公司)工作的同时也能够当个称职的爸爸。

Male executives almost never hear that question. MongoDB’s now-former CEO Max Schireson can attest to that.

男性高管很少听到这种问题。数据库公司的前任CEO希雷森可以证实这一点。

The head of the database company decided to step down Tuesday after asking himself how he can balance the dual demands of fatherhood and running a company.

周二,这位数据库公司的总裁在自问是否可以身兼好父亲和经营公司双重身份后决定辞职。

“As a male CEO, I have been asked what kind of car I drive and what type of music I like, but never how I balance the demands of being both a dad and a CEO,” wrote Schireson in a blog post explaining why he decided to step down as the chief executive for MongoDB.

作为一位男性总裁,我曾经被问到我开什么样的车,我喜欢哪种类型的音乐。但是,从没被问过怎么平衡父亲与总裁双重身份。希雷森在他的博客中就辞掉数据库公司总裁的原因中写道。

Women are still the focus of the “having it all” debate and questions of whether or not they can be wildly successful at both a high-powered job and day-to-day parenting. Now their male counterparts are asking the same question of themselves.

谈到“是否能够兼顾高压工作和日常家庭生活”这个问题时,女性依然是受到关注的焦点。现在男性也自问这个问题。
