“I am recommending this to all my friends who are moms who want to stay active in their careers — or make a career switch — and find work/life balance.” — Bev F
When I transitioned to a part-time role in a large company after the birth of our older son, I was asked over and over by working moms about how I made it happen. I was asked by friends and friends of friends and colleagues in the hallway. And friends who work part time are also asked regularly about how the make the professional part-time roles work.
After doing some online research, I realized that there were plenty of moms who wanted to work part time – 47 percent according to Pew Research – but only 25% do. There is a need in the workplace to understand how to stay engaged in your career and be the mom you want to be. And the concept of Mompowerment was born.
