Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! Please sign up for one or all of our talks. We know that people have summer plans or busy schedules so we are making it accessible. If you would like to contrubute please donate HERE

Thanks for asking you can donate here (no fees taken!) or you can buy one of our #webelonghere shirts to get ready for our next campaign here

Ummm – of course! This is a Moms at Work summit! Who would we be if we didn’t offer a free recording. We would love you to attend live but if you can’t we will share the recordings to those signed up for our newsletter. Not on the list? Better fix that and join here 

 I am sad that you have to ask this! But the answer is yes. We have asked our speakers to do limited prep work other than to review our questions and we have asked them to choose what they would like to speak about. What is important to THEM. (Shocking I know). Moms at Work aims to set new standards. 

Yes – happy to answer any questions! Send us an email at outreach@thisismomsatwork.com
