In celebration of women's history month, I am hosting a live chat on my blog, MotherTalkers, on Wednesday, March 30, at 9 a.m. PT/ 12 p.m. ET. We will be speaking with Ellen Moran, chief of Staff to Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke.

Prior to being appointed to the position on April 23, 2009, Ellen was the White House director of communications during the early months of the Obama Administration. She has held numerous leadership positions, including executive director at EMILY's List. On a personal note, Ellen is married and has two children. Surely, she has a lot to say about the balancing act of a working mother with a job that is critical in supporting the economic stability and growth of this country as well as on the world stage.

I thought it would be great to pick Ellen's brain on not only the economic concerns close to our hearts, but how she balances her interests and activism with the responsibilities of motherhood. Please join me on March 30 to not only celebrate her accomplishments as leader, woman and mother, but talk with her about the issues close to our hearts. Thank you!
