Onscreen text: Leslie, Managing Director, San Francisco

Leslie: So I'm a mom. My daughter's two years old. And so right from the get-go, since this is about being personal, I know we don't hear a lot of people talking about this, my husband and I had a tough time getting pregnant. When you're in that space, mentally it's challenging, physically it's challenging, financially it's challenging. I would say Schwab, through that experience, was very supportive in being flexible with my schedule if I needed to be at certain appointments. 

To this day now that I'm—yay!—successfully a parent of a two year old, there's a different set of challenges, but that continued flexibility with my schedule has been really helpful, because you just never know if your child's gonna be sick one day. Things always happen unplanned. And so having an employer that is going to support me by being flexible in the ways that I need, not through a paycheck or not through benefits, but being flexible because my husband and I were having challenges in starting a family, it makes me feel connected in a very personal way
