Bright Horizons launches The Work-Life Equation podcast

NEWTON, Mass. — Bright Horizons, an education and care company, announced the launch of its new podcast, The Work-Life Equation, featuring candid conversations and stories from corporate leaders, public figures and everyday people who are balancing life, careers and caregiving.

The show is co-hosted by Bright Horizons chief digital and transformation officer, entrepreneur, mom and a champion of women around the world, Priya Krishnan along with best-selling author, advocate and global voice for moms, Christine Michel Carter.

The podcast’s debut guest is Indra Nooyi, a business executive who has been ranked among the world’s 100 most powerful women. Additional guests this season will include recording artist Deborah Cox and civil rights leader Alanah Odoms.

“Finding the balance between being a caregiver, finding personal happiness and having success in the workplace is a struggle for many,” said Krishnan. “Christine and I hope that through these candid conversations, caregivers of all kinds can learn from our guests and gain valuable insights whether they are caring for and raising children or transitioning to taking care of the elders in their lives. And hopefully we can all laugh together along the way.”

Carter hopes that the podcast can provide insight and inspiration for working parents.

“The 2023 theme for Women’s History Month is ‘Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories,’” Carter said. “I look forward to partnering with Bright Horizons to provide inspirational and informing stories that support working parents — especially women — and meet them where they are.”

Krishnan and Carter will provide new perspectives on life, work and caregiving, celebrate the ups and downs and helping listeners realize they’re not alone in their journey. Every month they will have conversations with guests about the human experience, navigating their growth raising and learning from their children, and becoming caregivers to their own parents.

Each episode will uncover a different aspect of the caregiving journey — how caregivers navigate some of the most complex aspects of raising children or caring for parents and the partnerships that are essential along the way. Episodes begin with a segment called “Here We Go Conversations” in which the hosts kick off the episode by discussing tough conversations and moments that they have had during the week that listeners can relate to and learn from.
