Helpr is proud to announce that Sarah Johal, brand expert and policy advocate for working parents, will be joining the Helpr Advisory Board. Sarah has made monumental strides toward gender equity and parental benefits. While employed at Lyft, she founded the UpLyft group to support employee caregivers, and hit headlines with their updated leave policy. Read more about that work in Slate. Sarah is pictured below at Lyft’s ‘Take Our Kids to Work’ day, where she met Helpr who had managed childcare for the event.
Sarah is also a member of the Parents in Tech Alliance, a group whose mission is to create positive and meaningful change for parents working in technology. Companies in high growth technology have a mission to lead by example to help create more diverse and inclusive workplaces. Their areas of focus are childcare assistance, equal and paid parental leave, manager training, cultural inclusion, new mother assistance and the establishment of Parent Resource Groups.
Most currently, Sarah is the founder of the content hub Underbelly, which explores all of the aforementioned topics regarding the intersection of parenthood, media and work.
Together, we plan to modernize parental support benefits and make parenthood more accessible to those who want to create family and continue their career track, whether in the tech sector or retail. Sarah’s enthusiasm, warmth, and complete commitment to the cause are warmly welcomed at Helpr HQ.
