I feel like I have always had this mom energy: from being the oldest of three growing up to actually physically having kids of my own. When I think about what my personal mission is and what I am most passionate about, it is really about empowering women - particularly working moms.
Women have left the workplace in droves, with the "Great Resignation" showing us the lowest level of female employment since the 1980s. As someone who was made in the 80s, this number is horrifying. A large solution to this problem is childcare: we need to do better (no, not you mom. The support system around you. You are doing great.)
I have been there, and know how hard it is to do everything by yourself. With every struggle, I am optimistic about the solution. I think our mom rage is at a breaking point where society is just about to stop calling us heroes, and will start to do something about it. Some promising ways:
I was listening to an episode of “Redefining HR,” recently, where a guest on that show from a company called Tend Lab said something like, other countries have support systems for families and children, and the US has women. That struck a cord with me, because I feel like through empowerment and showing up and speaking up, whether its at our companies or running for office, we can drive real change.
Let's be the generation that makes tomorrow better for our daughters.
I'm a motivated, self-starting marketer and working mom looking to make a difference in the world - one story at a time.
Let's get you set up for success!
