About Us

Meet the founders of TendLab
Amy Henderson

Amy Henderson

CEO and Co-founder of TendLab

A mindful social entrepreneur, Amy has played a founding role in several successful ventures. After the birth of her third child, she went on a quest to learn if it were possible to both show up for parenting and have a successful career. While conducting more than 220 formal interviews with working parents and sitting down with researchers from a number of different disciplines, Amy discovered that parenting develops career-critical skills. Armed with this revelation, Amy founded TendLab to help companies recognize and realize the value of their parent employees--for the benefit of everyone. Amy is a regular speaker and author advocating on behalf of the power of parenthood at work. Her book, Tending, will be published in early 2020 by Nationbuilder Books.
