Helping moms find each other and connect in meaningful ways is a complicated task — and it’s exactly what HeyMama does. As both a social and a professional network, we bring together working mothers — entrepreneurs, advisors, executives, founders, builders, and makers of all kinds — to provide each other with support, connection, and collaboration at every stage of life and career.
So why exactly is a community like this something you need in your life? Here are 7 irrefutable reasons why you should join:
1. It’s hard to meet other working moms. HeyMama makes it easy.
Meaningful connection is more important than ever right now, and more rare than it’s ever been. HeyMama is redefining what it means to be present together online. There’s no shortage of social media and networking groups where you can find a ton of people — but how do you cut through the noise to find your people? That’s what HeyMama does.
When you become a member, you’re instantly connected with 2700+ other like-minded working mothers from across the country with endless opportunities to meet via private Slack channels, email forums, and digital events. Because “working mother” is a pretty broad term, you can be sure to find your niche based on what you do, where you live, and what you’re into in one of our specialized subcommunities.
2. HeyMama members are successful — and lift each other up
As professionally ambitious women, it’s no secret that the odds are stacked against our success after having children. According to Pew Research Center, 50% of employed moms say being a parent makes it harder for them to advance in their job or career. HeyMama’s entire mission is to support working moms to defy the ways parenthood is statistically likely to hinder their professional goals. 87% of HeyMama members say they are more successful since joining, thanks to the connections they’ve made, business partnerships they’ve found, and advice they’ve received through the community.
3. Find your next opportunity
Whether you are on the prowl for the perfect job or looking to lock down your dream co-founder, HeyMama members never stop leveling each other up. Typically, up to 85% of career opportunities come from within your circle. In this network of 2700+ working moms who are mostly founders, entrepreneurs, and high-level executives, career opportunities aren’t just possible — they’re inevitable..
4. Digital events and programming that serve your whole life, professional and personal
None of us has all of the answers on how to make balancing business and family work, especially in the midst of a global pandemic, where a lot of us are now adding “teacher” to our resumes. But the power of community means we can figure it out together. From small mentoring workshops and expert-led panels to guides, tutorials, and articles, HeyMama monthly programming is designed to help you navigate your most stressful parenting and professional concerns, while our big annual events present some of the most incredible networking and learning opportunities on anyone’s calendar. And we’re not all work — you’ll definitely have fun and make new friends along the way.
5. Share your expertise
Every one of our members brings something new to the table, so come show us what you’ve got. HeyMama gives members infinite opportunities to share their skills and advice, engage in speaking opportunities and participate in events, and position themselves as thought leaders in their areas of expertise. You can offer advice in the forum, lead a panel or workshop, or write for HeyMama’s blog — at HeyMama, “community” means asking for what you need and offering what you can.
6. Two words: deals & discounts
All HeyMama members get access to a carefully curated list of exclusive perks from member founders and brands we love. You’ll find discounts on everything you’re shopping for, from fitness to fashion, services to events, and so much more. If you own a business you think members would love, you’ll have the opportunity to promote it here.
7. Get featured on ShopHeyMama.co
Ah, let us tell you about one of our very favorite things now. So, you probably know by now that we strongly believe that being part of a community means supporting the community. That’s why we created ShopHeyMama.co, a platform that brings all our member-owned businesses together in one place. If you own a business you think members would love — whether it’s a consultancy, e-commerce, or service — you’ll have the chance to be featured on the website, which will drive more traffic and awareness to your site.
