Bright Horizons (NYSE: BFAM), a leading education and care company, announces the anticipated next season of The Work-Life Equation Podcast. This season, Bright Horizons Chief Digital and Transformation Officer Priya Krishnan welcomes Paul Sullivan, founder of The Company of Dads, as the new co-host. Upcoming episodes promise engaging dialogues, compelling stories, and valuable insights from corporate leaders, public figures, and individuals navigating the delicate balance of life, careers, and caregiving.

Paul Sullivan intimately understands the nuances of being a dad navigating home life with children, shedding light on the joys, frustrations, and the need to normalize conversations around this impactful role.

The duo is committed to delivering content that resonates with a diverse audience and addresses the multifaceted aspects of the caregiving experience.

"When you’re a working parent, you know how many moving parts there are – and this show is focused on shedding a light on how to navigate these moments," emphasized Co-Host Priya Krishnan, Bright Horizons’ Chief Digital and Transformation Officer. "Pursuing personal happiness and managing caregiving responsibilities is a familiar struggle for many. Paul and I aspire to illuminate our listeners' paths, offering a sense of acknowledgment and imparting valuable insights that enhance their day-to-day lives."

As someone who is pushing for fathers to have a greater role in parenting, I feel fortunate to be part of a podcast – within an industry-leading company – that shines a light on the challenges of being a working parent.”

Joining Krishnan and Sullivan as their first guest this season is David Newson, Founder of XNW Digital. With a successful career in marketing and a genuine commitment to striking a balance between professional success and personal fulfillment, David's insights into intentional time management and navigating the challenges of parenthood and leadership are sure to resonate with working parents and leaders seeking improved work-life integration.
