Calliope PR: Children & Pets Welcome
I am thrilled to announce that in-house childcare is available for all meetings hosted at Calliope PR headquarters, whether with staff, clients, colleagues, or members of the press.
Before launching Calliope PR, I asked myself what I needed in a workplace and what I wanted to provide to make it a hospitable working environment for everyone in my company’s reach, especially if I’m seeking to support fellow women. As a parent of a young child, there was an obvious answer: provide childcare.
I am fortunate to station Calliope’s headquarters in my home which allows for flexible hours and zero time lost in commute each day, affording me precious extra time to spend with my family. I am also fortunate to have excellent, dependable childcare through my friend, Zasha Arroyo, who became nanny to my daughter three years ago when she was only four months old.
Zasha, a writer, crafter, animal-lover, feminist, and childcare specialist has accepted the position of Childcare Provider for Calliope PR. Which means that asking, “Will anyone need childcare for this meeting?” is now a normal part of doing business. Pets are also welcome.
