Tip Tuesday: How to build a strong community of support for working moms

Today’s Tip Tuesday is all about my favorite group of women. Working Moms!

These women play an unique role in our society. These women are not only successful business professional. These women raise children and manage households as well.

With so many balls to juggle at once, it is important to have somewhere to go when you need help. Unfortunately, not all companies create such an environment. In my recent episode of the Benefits Mom Podcast, Susannah Lago (owner of Style Up Group in Milwaukee Wisconsin) talked about how she found little support or connection with other working moms at her former corporate job. Listen more to our conversation below, plus check out her most recent pop up truck weekend events: https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6683126489925398528/

27: Take Back Your Schedule Benefits Mom

So how can you help support your fellow working moms out there? First off, start small. Ask a few of your closest friends or co-workers. Offer to host a ZOOM call or small meet up to discuss what your current struggles or concerns are. Make sure you stress that the discussions are private and should not be shared with other people outside of the group.

As you continue to meet, invite more people and encourage “bring a friend” initiatives. You never how big the group will grow. Susannah’s Working Moms in Milkwalkee group has now grown to over 3,000 members. The sky is the limit here.

Have you started a working moms group in your area or at work? Please share your experience with me. I would love to hear how moms are supporting each other, especially during these unique times. If you want more help in starting your own group or have questions about this topic, let’s chat.
