Our goal in this work is simple: present and build on what works to increase the numbers of women in leadership who navigate the challenges of life and of work—with a boatload more joy.
Our LeaderMom research builds on hard-won insights from panels of high performing leaders who are also deeply engaged mothers. You belong here if you care about leadership and have children or are thinking about having kids, if you manage women who have or are thinking about kids, or if you care about leadership and want to bring your best self anywhere.
