Our first cohort of the mentorship program kicked off in April 2018. You won't want to miss out on the next one! This is your chance to connect with other savvy, career-driven moms to help you thrive.
This program connects professional moms with a peer mentor. All participants meet as a group every few weeks to discuss career and parenting challenges. One participant described her experience: "I have a demographic and sounding board for my new experiences and issues related to new motherhood and career, which are intimately connected."
Join the mailing list. A new cohort is expected to begin in late summer or fall 2018.
