Welcome to the
Debut Collective

Section Background Image

We’re reimagining the return-to-work experience.

The Debut Co. partners with mothers and organizations to maximize personal and professional potential as they transition to motherhood.

The transition back from maternity leave is challenging – not only for the mothers, but for employers, too.

Despite decades of study and well-meaning efforts, there is still a lack of understanding and communication around how to support the transition. This can lead to burnout, confusion, and career disparity with many women opting out, costing organizations and society alike.

Imagine a better way.

The Debut Collective envisions something better, where working mothers and organizations navigate the transition through motherhood – together.

I have been able to successfully transition back to work following maternity leave and move into a leadership role supporting the organization’s vision and strategy. The Debut Co. helped me with my confidence following maternity leave, while examining my new identity as a working mom.

Since I started working with The Debut Co. my confidence and self-worth have grown exponentially. They have professional, caring and approachable coaches who worked with me to develop my own insight into the beliefs and values that may have been blocking me from growing in life and career. I was provided a variety of resources and they encouraged me to do what works. They are wonderful mentors. I would not hesitate to recommend The Debut Co. to moms looking for more guidance in personal and career life.

It’s hard to put into words the gratitude I feel towards The Debut Co. I joined when I was spiraling in my career fresh off maternity leave. I felt so much anxiety. The Debut Co. helped me understand that I have all the time that I need. They helped me get a handle on my triggers and solidify my core values. They have guided me through not only visualizing, but embodying the best version of myself. I now have the tools to sit at my computer every morning with ease – even excitement to get my day started. I am a different person coming out of this. A confident leader and it shows at work. I can feel it in the way people interact with me, both above and below my pay grade. Every single person transitioning into a people leadership role needs a coach. Full stop. These aren’t skills we can figure out alone without some guidance.

Working with Saphina and Erin at The Debut Co.  had a monumental impact on my life.  They helped me lean in and take action to become the person I wanted to show up as, getting me through challenging situations and encouraging me to show up as the Michelle I knew I could be, which is now my default. Beyond that, the program supported the discovery of the career path that I was trying to unlock,  which came about from the work we did together. I am so grateful !
