Stronger Together: Being a Champion for Moms

Balancing Motherhood and a Career is hard. Women are living and working in a society that is not set up to support the pursuit of both professional goals and family. Explore how we can empower each other to affect change in this area, and how corporations/leadership can do a better job at supporting and encouraging women during this phase of life.

About It Starts with Mom 

It Starts with Mom is a national movement to honor moms, highlight the current maternal health crisis, and spotlight our commitment to fighting for healthy moms.

The reality is motherhood is hard. From pre-term to postpartum. To infants and toddlers. To big kids and pre-teens.

We are utilizing our platform to bring together your community’s thought leaders and equip moms to become the best advocates in dealing with some of today’s biggest challenges – in her home, at her workplace, and during her doctor’s visits.

The It Starts with Mom LIVE California Content Series invites executives, who are also balancing motherhood, to share their story.

As a champion for moms during every stage of motherhood, March of Dimes stands as the backbone that so many women in the U.S. need, including today’s Millennial and Gen Z moms.
