Multitasking, conflict resolution, crisis management. They're skills used every day by CIOs in the office -- and equally by parents on the homefront.

To celebrate Mother’s Day, Computerworld sought out eight mothers who hold the title of CIO. We asked them how being a mother has influenced their management style, how they juggle parenthood with tech leadership and what advice they'd give other parents and would-be parents rising through the ranks of IT.
