What is HeyMama?

Why we’re all here

Why we’re all here

Like all good ideas, HeyMama started as a solution to a problem. Founders Amri Kibbler and Katya Libin set out to create what was missing in their own lives: a community of career-driven mothers who have each others’ backs and actively seek to improve their lives while also lifting up those around them.

It seemed so obvious that something like this should exist, so they built it. In the years since, the HeyMama team and community of members has grown like wild — turns out, this is a need a lot of women have been missing.

And our shared hunger for a community to pour our energy into makes sense. As professionally ambitious women, the odds are against our continued achievement after having kids. A stark lack of systemic support and resources affects working mothers across all industries, both a product of the stigma against working moms and fuel for its continuation. The relationships we build — and the networks through which we build them — are the invaluable basis of all the ways we thrive and succeed. The fact that our kids are watching how we work and how we conduct our lives adds even more pressure — we want to model a healthier, more vibrant and balanced working life and community for our kids as much as we want it for ourselves.

Helping moms find each other and connect in meaningful ways is a complicated task — and it’s exactly what HeyMama does.

As diverse as our goals and lives are, HeyMama members have one thing in common: We have incredibly high expectations for our careers and personal lives — and no single one of us knows everything we need to know to make it all work. HeyMama is an ecosystem built for members to come together for the collective benefit and advancement of the whole community, in our work, our families, and ourselves.

Community, how it was always meant to be

Maybe it’s just us (it’s not), but the word “community” is so overused that it’s starting to lose any real meaning. Everywhere you look, the word “community” is being used to — we’re just going to say it — sell you something. We don’t know about you, but we’re so over this. To us, community isn’t something you buy — it’s something you do.

At HeyMama, our members “do” community every day. We show up for each other. We ask for what we need and offer what we can. We help each other; we listen. We don’t treat networking as a series of cold, business transactions between mutually interested parties, but rather as a living habit of building and nurturing conversations, connections, and experiences that actually mean something.

And that’s what makes HeyMama magic. It’s impossible to measure, but it’s undeniable once you’re a part of it. Our members bring their entire selves into this community, and the HeyMama team spends all day every day building an environment and experiences that facilitate these connections and elevate our members every way we can.
