Mom-Mentum focuses its work in three areas: Motherhood, Work/Life and Advocacy.
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. These programs offer moms and other caregivers friendship, support, empathy, information and resources. Our Mothers Central blog offers parenting conversations that explore real, authentic motherhood experiences, insights and questions.
Mom-Mentum offers an Annual Work/Life 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.
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 the Mom-Mentum Advocacy Initiative, we advocate for the economic support of caregiving in public policy. Our Woman In Washington blog keeps readers up to date on public policy that impacts mothers and families.
Our webinars offer dynamic topics on parenting, personal development, work/life and advocacy from the comfort of your home.
The vision of Mom-Mentum is a society where the work of taking care of others is valued, supported, at the center of public discussion and a priority in public policy.Learn More About Mom-mentum
