You don't become a superhero when you become a parent

A story about dealing with both managing quality transformation and parental responsibilities

The support system in our society is inadequate for working parents. I mistakenly believed I could handle it alone by embodying a flawless and fearless superhero.

Nowadays, it is increasingly common for both parents to share the responsibility of raising and nurturing their children. In 2022, this was my spirit when my daughter was born, while as a QA manager, I was contributing to a long-awaited transition to Quality Engineering for my team. Considering the remote-friendly policy in my company, I thought the two things combined were manageable, with no significant changes in my work. I was wrong.

In this talk, I’ll share the personal and professional obstacles, struggles, and mistakes that led me to a mental overload, what I should have avoided instead, and my actions to mitigate the risks now and in the future. I want to share my story with those who have to deal with uncertainty during intense, stressful periods, in a context where organizations are looking for more productivity in a fast-changing world.
