Working Caregivers Roundtable: Caring and Advocating for Ourselves (Mobilize Women Week)


We're holding space during MWW for mothers and caregivers to come together for support, validation, and growth. You'll experience an expert-led keynote followed by imtimate breakouts.

Fri, Jun 25, 2021 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM EDT

Working parenthood has never been easy. Right now, however, it’s never been trickier.

Balancing our careers with caregiving and everything else life is throwing our way during a pandemic has placed parents – mothers, especially – in a precarious position.

This event is an opportunity to engage in honest conversations about the challenges we’re facing at home as parents and at work as professionals. We’ll also discuss solutions and ways forward together as a group and with expert guests.

This event is open to all working parents and caregivers. You are free to join this Zoom meeting however you feel most comfortable - with the cameras on or off.

We only ask that you come ready to create a supportive and interactive experience. You can do this by coming with something to give (insights, experiences) or something to ask (questions, support).

It's time to mobilize.

Change doesn’t happen magically. The world doesn’t become inclusive by flipping a switch. It takes work, it takes leaders, it takes action. It takes you.

In a world where feminism can’t exist without intersectionality, where passive allyship is no longer good enough, where we embrace not just our careers but for our whole selves… our conversations can’t be the same as they were years ago. Why should we settle for anything less than equal?

Through the course of five days and 15+ sessions, you’ll hear thought-provoking discussions from diverse perspectives and leave with action-oriented solutions to tackle some of today’s biggest challenges in your workplace and communities. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet other leaders in business, media, sports, politics, and more who, like you, want to use their influence and social capital for equality.

When I saw "Caregiver" I got excited, but no kids here, just grandma.
