Collaborative, Exciting, Groundbreaking
Motherhood and career are not meant to be solitary endeavors; and yet, both can be lonely places. Inspired by the research and knowledge that we are stronger together than we are alone, Amy and Abby design and hold the space for mothers to laugh, learn and share from each other in a powerful, energizing, and mobilizing way. There is great strength in vulnerability. When we allow ourselves to be seen, heard, and supported by others in our experience as working mothers, we gain access to a collective strength, wisdom, and energy that has the potential to dismantle and revolutionize the future of working motherhood. We will take the tender vulnerability of sharing with each other and allow it to yield collaborative, exciting and groundbreaking results.
"Working moms, especially those coming back to work after parental leave, have rarely considered how becoming a parent can help them develop skills that will enhance their careers. Tendlab's research requires us to consider how we can leverage our role as parents to thrive at work."

Integrate skills you've developed as a Mom
Grounded in Tendlab's research, this course will help participants recognize and integrate into their careers the skills they develop while parenting. Our group setting will include moms from different companies and will allow each woman to recognize the shared challenges inherent to being a working mom. It will also allow the group to access a deeper level of insight and understanding by de-stigmatizing the alienation and shame so many working moms experience. Our series will build a strong community among participants who will then be empowered to recognize and advocate for what they need to succeed.
