Our Value Statement
Mom-mentum provides leadership, education, and advocacy to support mothers in meeting today's personal and professional challenges. This includes peer and group support, training through seminars and workshops, professional development, and a public policy advocate. Mom-mentum offers an Annual Women's Leadership Conference to make a business case for flex options in the workplace which we know most employees (especially moms) need to manage their work and personal responsibilities. We also host the Sloan Awards for Excellence in Workplace Effectiveness and Flexibility to highlight companies that do this well.
Mom-mentum began as a grassroots, mom-to-mom support program. Our network of local programs still offers the opportunity to have discussion among mothers to recognize the challenges, realities and value of mothering. Over time we expanded our work to include work/life and advocacy issues that impact mothers and their families greatly and affect a mother's financial well-being. Through Mom-mentum's Advocacy Initiative, we advocate for the economic support of caregiving in public policy. Our blog keeps readers up to date on public policy that impacts mothers and families.
