Mothers are plateauing, downshifting or leaving the workforce while companies lose talent, time and money.

Everyone needs a better future than this.

We help companies advance gender equity in the workplace with programs that blend EDI strategy, education and coaching to support working mothers, parents and leaders.


Women who become mothers at some point in their career.

Reshma Saujani, author of Pay Up 2022

People who have left a job because their manager wasn’t empathetic to their personal life.

EY 2021

Companies in the UK, US, and Canada with 50% or more female executives and directors showed greater long-term growth.

Equileap Global Report 2023

No One is Expected to Change This Alone.

For decades, working mothers have faced parental bias, overt judgment, societal pressure and a flashing off-ramp most are forced to take when they enter into motherhood. Not anymore.

Beyond the policies and systems, corporate culture needs a refresh. For mothers to lead at work, Dads need to feel like they can lead at home.

This is a two-way street, a partnership between individuals and companies, so that all mothers have a mutually-built on-ramp between their roles. This is about everyone getting on-board to support mothers in a collective context, long-term.

Parental Bias Workshops for Companies

The Signature Coaching Program for Mothers

A coaching container for the modern mother who wants to be fully supported in returning to work understanding their shifting roles, leveraging their leadership and building a stable path forward.

6-Week Working Parents Leadership Intensive

The leaders of the future are highly empathetic and set an example of how the whole-person approach to leading companies, teams and individuals influences mothers, families and communities.



Using three practical tools, we’ll set the foundation for both the landscape and leadership shifts needed in every organization.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • We have an existing in-house program and/or benefit for mothers, so how would working with you complement what we already have?

    Our workshops and coaching are tailored to slide right alongside what you’re already doing. We expand upon what exists to create more engagement, generate more leadership skills, build more confidence and inspire more connection between mothers and employers. We also solve common perk pitfalls (more time off is great, but it’s not fixing the problem) with tools proven to work. By nature of being an independent third party, we also give employees a safe space to be vulnerable and, oftentimes, be more open about what they’re going through than they otherwise might have been. This is hugely beneficial to you to create change your employees actually need. It cuts out the inefficient guesswork and gives you a leg up to move in a better direction faster.

  • What if I have more than 20 employees who want to attend the workshops?

    We created a numbers cap for our in-person sessions because of the nature of the content. Empathetic leadership requires vulnerability, so greater numbers lessens the chance that people will share openly and honestly. We also facilitate smaller breakout groups throughout the workshops, so having more groups isn’t conducive to a timely and impactful experience.

  • How do we gauge our capacity to manage this program internally?

    Our workshops and coaching are created to complement your company resourcing. We’ve geared our offerings towards a high or low touch based on what you need and what your goals are. Our support encompasses both internal and external communications alongside KPI development and reporting.

  • How are we measuring the desired outcomes and who is in charge of calculating them?

    We don’t bring in anything boilerplate. Our workshops and coaching are tailored to you and for your employees so that your goals and impact are at the forefront of change while laddering up to the vision of the company and its future. Our in-house KPI and reporting is a mandatory and significant component to any package we offer our clients.

  • How do we know this is worth the investment?

    An investment in working mothers isn’t a risky investment. It’s risky not to, and we know what happens when companies don’t. While this is a turn-key solution guaranteed to improve your bottom line now and in the future, it’s about more than time spent or money paid. This is about making a difference to moms struggling in your workplace. Our workshops and coaching are the solution to a long-term change that underpins everything from equity to diversity, profit to employability now and in the future. To be a leader is to inherently take on risk, and we believe moms are worth the investment a hundred times over.

  • How can we be sure your approach fits in with the culture of our company?

    Book a free 30-minute call with us and we’d be more than happy to address any questions about fit, hear more about where you’re at and what the cultural goals of the company are now and in the future. At the end of the day, we exist to enrich culture and bring out the best in what companies are capable of through every area of our work.

  • Where are we going to find the time to not only do the workshops, but implement everything?

    We understand that training in new methodologies and changing company culture isn’t an overnight job. It can be hard to squeeze in, but the initial commitment exponentially saves everyone’s time and energy in the future. The People Leader workshops are designed as integrated learning tools that apply to real life workplace scenarios to help ease communication and create trust contributing to your workplace culture and your bottom line.
