An Insider's view of The Mom Project

What's something quirky about your company?

It's a dog-eat-dog world around here... but in the best way possible. We love our furry friends! The more, the merrier.


Marketing & Partnerships

What projects are you most excited about?

I wouldn't say there is just one project I am most excited about (mostly because we have so many!) I will say that being able to be a sounding board for these women, some who have never been able to discuss their families while in the midst of their job search, is truly incredible. I'm just happy and excited to be a part of their journey!


Talent Success Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

Someone who is organized, able to multitask like a boss, be action-oriented and driven can be successful on our team. Also, if you can communicate your needs internally to your teammates in real-time and also congratulate them on their wins, you can be successful at The Mom Project!


Sr. Manager, Talent Success

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I encourage my team to be creative by taking short spans (2-3 days) where we completely step out of our day-to-day work and focus on larger ideas. By unshackling from the "to-do" list and flexing our brains in a different way, we come up with incredibly interesting and creative solutions that we may not have if we were stuck to a meeting agenda.


Head of Community & Marketing

How does the company support your career growth?

After my youngest turned 4, I started to think about going back to work. I wasn't sure of the opportunities that would be available to me after a break in employment. The Mom Project provided me with an opportunity to get "back in the game." I now have the balance I was seeking and am so grateful for the opportunities that TMP has provided!
