AS SEENON

A 360-DEGREE VIEW ON MOTHERHOOD

Being a mama is tough—all of the expectations and competing priorities placed on us are enough to make a girl pull her hair out.  Add on top of that, the desire to do right by your children and your partner and still chase your dreams, and … well, it’s easy to get lost in it all.

The Mother Honestly Summit is a one-day interactive experience that will inspire, empower and equip you with the tools, resources and infrastructure needed to align your goals and ambition with your role as a mother. We provide women a holistic view on how to approach their lives in motherhood through engaging keynotes, workshops and fireside chats with the brightest and most inspiring leaders who will  guide you to your greatest vision for your life and provide actionable steps towards making it a reality.

This Summit is for women, mothers, professionals, entrepreneurs and corporations who value female leaders and their role as mothers. Topics we cover span:

WELL BEING AND MENTAL HEALTH

Motherhood and Parenting

Relationships and Marriage

EQUAL PAY AND TRANSPARENCY

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

FAMILY AND FLEXIBILITY

Career DEVELOPMENT

FITNESS and Wellness

Personal Finance
