We believe that motherhood belongs on the resume.
It’s beyond time to finally tear down the deep cultural bias against mothers in the workplace and recognize motherhood for what it really is: a training ground for leadership. That’s why we’re launching Motherhood On The Resume (MOTR), a movement to validate the unpaid labor of moms, de-stigmatize taking time off from work for motherhood, and recognize the strengths moms bring to their professional lives, not in spite of being parents but because of it.
Starting May 18th, join us by adding “mother” to your resume. In turn, we will arm you with the resources and know-how to translate everything you’ve learned as a parent into tangible professional strengths and skills. We can only do this if we all do it — when we band together and celebrate all that we bring to our careers as mothers, we set the example and open doors for everyone else.
MOTHERHOOD IS A TRAINING GROUND FOR LEADERSHIP
American workers think that working moms:
Yet motherhood isn’t seen as an advantage. In fact, it can be a career killer:
but 43% of moms end up leaving the workforce completely.
Our goal is to get 1,000 women to add motherhood to their resume by National Women’s Equality Day on August 26th.
ADD MOTHERHOOD TO YOUR RESUME
Add “Mother” to your LinkedIn title to show the world what you bring to the table, and encourage other moms in your network to do the same.
We’ve created a limited run of MOTR t-shirts to help us make a statement. We’ll be rewarding campaign participants with a chance to win one — check out our social channels for details.

Dismantling the stigmas mothers face in the workplace starts with each of us. When we stand together in showcasing both parts of our lives, it creates a new normal and opens doors for the next generation of working mothers.
