This year our workshops focus on the following four areas: Legal, Leadership, Communications and Financials. Attendees can choose any two of the four areas as their workshops options.



Every journey is unique, as well known industry leaders will tell you in an interactive dialogue about the challenges faced and tools used to accomplish work/life success. During this discussion, you will learn how flexibility, dedication and persistence help these corporate leaders succeed in both their personal and professional lives. Be inspired by their strategies and challenges in their early years in the trenches while raising families and building a professional presence on Long Island. You will be motivated to examine work and life in a whole new way.



As part of the Women's Leadership Conference, Mom-mentum is proud to be serving as the host organization for the Long Island region’s participation in the When Work Works (formerly Alfred P. Sloan) Awards for Excellence in Business Effectiveness and Flexibility. As host, Mom-mentum has committed to spreading the word about the award, encouraging Long Island employers to apply and consulting with a broad range of business and community leaders to help promote this award for the benefit of the Long Island business community and this region. 

The When Work Works Award Winners of 2014 are from 42 different states and the District of Columbia. They represent a variety of industries ranging from technology to manufacturing to finance to health care. And all are proving that effective and flexible workplace practices can work in organizations of all sizes.

Judy Martin

Mom-mentum is offering its first annual scholarship honoring Judy Martin, journalist and WorkLife Nation founder, who strove to promote a work-life balance, teaching professionals how to manage their stress in order to achieve success and serenity in their careers and in their lives. Ms. Martin was a consistent supporter, advocate and presenter at the annual NAMC Work/Life Conference for many years. She has left with us a legacy of truth, wisdom and appreciation for the present.

This scholarship fund has been established in her honor to remember the work that she did and to help support women who will continue on this path.

One award in the amount of $500 will be granted to a Long Island woman who seeks to continue Judy Martin’s mission of ensuring professional well-being and improving the workplace culture for maximum productivity, innovation, and creation.
