About the Presenters: 


Amy Beacom: Founder and CEO - Center for Parental Leave Leadership

Dr. Amy Beacom has worked in the field of executive leadership development and coaching, with a particular focus on issues of relevance to women leaders, since 1996. Ten years ago, after the birth of her first child, Amy envisioned a new field that focused on the unique challenges and opportunities faced by working parents – and their work organizations – specific to the parental leave timeframe. She named this new field Parental Leave Consulting and Coaching and began to create the field through her doctoral research at Columbia University and her private consulting practice. In 2014, Amy founded the Center for Parental Leave Leadership (CPLL), the only consultancy in the United States to focus exclusively on parental leave. All of CPLL’s work is research and data-driven, tested and continuously improved, built from experience, and delivered by RETAIN certified coaches and consultants. Amy has developed numerous partnerships with political, academic and business leaders to advance comprehensive parental leave training and support programs for parents and managers in the workplace. The RETAIN™ Parental Leave Coaching Program, the Parental Leave Transition Assessment (PLTA), RETAIN Manager Training and related 10-A Framework are a few of the business support products based on her work.
