PROS&BABES

WHERE FAMILIES AND CAREERS

GROW TOGETHER

Imagine if...

  • Maternity leave was a positive step for your career, giving you a chance to network, learn new skills, think about your goals and connect with career-minded moms like you.
  • As a working mom, you had an amazing tribe of women who would keep you accountable for your goals and help you find solutions for career-life integration.

That's why Pros&Babes is here!

Join our unique program for moms on mat leave or our peer mentorship group for working moms.

"As a working mom, what I appreciate about Pros&Babes is the space it allows for real, honest conversations with other career-driven women about the challenges we face to balance desires of continued professional growth with motherhood. The workshops offer an opportunity to reflect on what inspires us about our careers, share techniques in balancing parenting and be held accountable for newly developed goals in our work and personal lives." - Johnna L., author, participant
