Why career-driven moms love Pros&Babes

"Being in a male-dominated field, I didn't know many other women who were starting careers and families. I have wonderful friends and family, but nothing replaces the tribe that I found at Pros&Babes... (which) is different than other moms' groups because it talks about careers as well."

- Amanda Robertson, electrical engineer

"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. "

- Johnna L., dementia educator, author, participant

"Pros&Babes provides me a space with women of a similar demographic to discuss challenges I have with returning from maternity leave, work-life balance, and how to continue growing in my career while being a parent. I enjoy both the parenting and career discussions with the other moms where I am able to build my "village" by learning from other moms and providing and receiving support and encouragement."

- Naomi, Research Scientist

"This group was a just what I needed to help transition from work to mat leave. It provided a much needed opportunity to meet other career minded moms and talk about professional topics as well as motherhood."

- Michelle, HR Consultant

"Pros&Babes is a safe place to meet and share motherhood and career experiences with other career minded women in the community. It is particularly beneficial to be meeting face-to-face on a regular basis, and I found the intimate setting of the small groups conducive to sharing and relationship building. These forged connections superior to any online platforms or other mom classes I have attended to-date. I found myself and others much more willing to share in this environment, leading to a more enriching experience for all."

- Andrea, Project Development Engineer

"Through Pros&Babes, I have a demographic and sounding board for my new experiences and issues related to new motherhood and career, which are intimately connected."

- Angela, Senior Policy Analyst

"I felt like it was not alone as a woman who liked to work. It was good to know that other moms are out there and committed to family and job."
