Building a better workplace

Mothers are a major growth engine in our economy and represent a significant
share of our nation's intellectual capital — yet 43% of skilled American women
leave the workplace after becoming mothers.

We must do a better job of supporting
professionals building careers and families.

At The Mom Project, we're committed to helping women remain active in the workforce in every stage
in their journey and we're proud to work with employers who are committed to designing and
supporting a better workplace.
