#SHESHARESHERSTORY

Powered by Working Mom Notes and Learning Motherhood

ALMOST 3 MILLION WOMEN HAVE LEFT THE WORKFORCE. IT'S TIME TO RETURN, ON OUR TERMS.

It's time to leverage the amount of us out of the workforce in order to get us back in more equitably.

Many publications have shared women's stories and statistics, but without a solution. 

"Without significant action, such as additional employer support and training programs, there is a real danger that female labor force participation could face its steepest sustained decline since World War II. Female workforce participation has already dropped to 57%—the lowest level since 1988, according to the National Women’s Law Center."

Fortune Online

"Absent concerted action to address inequity, full recovery for vulnerable populations is unlikely until 2023 or 2024."

McKinsey&Company

"No one is experiencing business as usual, but women—especially mothers, senior-level women and Black women—have faced distinct challenges. One in four women are considering downshifting their careers or leaving the workforce due to Covid-19."

Women in the Workplace

"Corporate America is at a critical crossroads. Without bold steps, we could erase all the progress we’ve made toward gender diversity in the six years of this study. But if companies rise to the moment, we can lay the foundation for a more flexible and equitable workplace in the long-term."

WE HAVE A SOLUTION

For the first time in our lifetimes, the spotlight is truly on women and we're not fighting as individuals.

  • Better company policies

  • Pay transparency

  • Confidence in women to negotiate their worth

  • Access to reliable and reputable childcare

Working Mom Notes and Learning Motherhood have partnered with businesses that address these needs. We are giving women and organizations a plan of action by highlighting companies who can equitably help women return to the workforce.

WINNIE_Logo.jpg

Winnie is a daycare and preschool marketplace with over 200K providers across the United States. Millions of parents across the United States use Winnie for free to discover high-quality local daycares and preschools and learn all about their programs including detailed descriptions, photos, cost, Covid health and safety measures, licensing status, open spaces and more.

At Project Matriarchs, we match college students, many of whom currently have highly flexible schedules due to remote learning, with families to provide virtual academic support and/or mentorship to their child(ren). We pay our college students $15 an hour, while also maintaining our commitment to meeting every family they work with exactly where they are financially. Project Matriarchs offers this resource for free to anyone who needs it, and asks that anyone who feels comfortable contributing anything do so in the form of a regular donation that reflects an hourly rate that feels sustainable to them. This sliding scale payment model, in addition to external fundraising, enables Project Matriarchs to subsidize this resource for families that cannot afford an hourly rate of $15, which has helped us reach families that have been excluded from the existing alternatives, most of which are prohibitively expensive for many families at the moment. To get connected, reach out via our intake form on our website.
