To celebrate Mother’s Day, AdForum sat down with a series of mothers to hear first hand what it is like to be a working mother in the advertising industry. We would like to thank Kari Shimmel, Chief Marketing Officer at Campbell Ewald for taking part in this interview series.

Perspectives: Mothers In Advertising
We need more companies to implement flexible time policies and for mangers to lead by example and take time off. Every year Americans leave PTO on the table and fear the guilt of leaving work behind. A cultural shift will only happen when we actively encourage and reward employees for finding balance in their lives. This time brings perspective, creativity and fulfilled people, which will also make for better workplaces. Everyone wins.
