Honoring National Infertility Awareness week
Last month, we closed out our International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month celebration with a Courageous Conversation about working parents, the struggles of fertility, and pregnancy loss. Today marks the start of National Infertility Awareness week here in the U.S., so I wanted to share more about our recent event and how we’re supporting the women of Commvault, as well as our working partners, as they navigate these challenges.
Our Courageous Conversations are global, virtual events that are a core component of our DE&I strategy. They allow us to connect, support, and inspire each other by having open discussions about topics that are close to our hearts. As our Chief People Officer Martha Delehanty always says, “you need to have the conversation, to change the conversation.”
During the event, we heard from our Vaulters Lisa McGahran, Stephanie Joyce, and Elliot Hujarski as they discussed their personal journeys with fertility and pregnancy loss. We also had guest speaker Stacey Skrysak join us to share her own story and how she’s helping others by being a voice for premature birth, child loss, and infertility. This Courageous Conversation was so powerful and important for our Vaulter community – our speakers courageously opened their hearts to share their stories with us as we talked about how grief and hope can co-exist.
Infertility and pregnancy loss are, unfortunately, very real issues that many women in the workplace (as well as their partners) deal with today as they continue to navigate their careers. At Commvault, we continue to show our commitment and support for not only our working parents, but those aspiring to be parents as well.
The power of hope, positivity, and support is what guides us all each day. We’re proud to support the wellness of our Vaulters and give them the resources they need throughout their journeys.
