Working Mothers Work Hard Everywhere
On a recent trip to Thailand, Human Resources Director Tammy Chiu spent a day learning to be a Mahout (elephant caretaker) to Siam, a 45-year-old working mother of 3 expecting her fourth baby elephant. Tammy’s day of instruction included the care and feeding of her elephant, and how to guide Siam during a beautiful ride down to the river where she bathed and washed her. We're sure that Tammy was as helpful with figuring out a life/work balance for Siam as she is in assisting working moms at the Museum.
