Episode 70: Work and Motherhood with Kristi Rible


Hey, friends and podcast listeners! Welcome back to another episode of the Heartful Parent Podcast. I'm so excited to be here with you today.

If you've been listening for a while, we don't just discuss parenting here. As I always say, we wear a lot of hats—we're people, partners, professionals, and so much more. That's why I love exploring various topics on the pod. 

This week, I'm particularly thrilled to introduce someone truly inspirational: my friend, colleague, mentor, and teacher, Kristi Rible. Kristi is the founder and CEO of The Human Group and is dedicated to humanizing the workplace by preparing leaders for a future that demands flexibility, empathy, trust, connection, and psychological safety. She champions a diverse, equitable, and inclusive representation of our collective humanity.

Kristi's international leadership experience spans over 25 years, covering technology and consumer products in public and startup ventures across the US, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. She is a fierce advocate for the advancement of women, which is how I met her through her Stanford course, “Motherhood and Work.” She teaches an incredible class once a year, and it's open to continuing ed students. It is conducted remotely so that you can join from anywhere. 

Kristi holds an impressive array of credentials, including an MBA in International Business from Thunderbird and Arizona State University, a BA in African Studies and Classical Archaeology from Franklin and Marshall College, and Executive Certifications in Organizational Gender Balance from INSEAD, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion from Cornell, Executive Coaching from UC Berkeley, and the Fair Play Method.

In today's conversation, Kristi and I dive into the power of language, the modern movements and setbacks affecting parents, mothers, and women in particular, and so much more. I'm super excited to share this enlightening discussion with you.
