A 360-DEGREE VIEW ON MOTHERHOOD

Step into your truest worth and highest potential in 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.

Mother: The Summit is a one-day (or full-weekend, if you choose to make a trip out of it) 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. Our engaging keynotes, breakouts and fireside chats with some of the brightest and most inspiring leaders and mamas will  guide you to your greatest vision for your life and provide actionable steps towards making it a reality.

These leading experts—and mamas!—in health and wellness, career, business, relationships, money and more will present a 360-degree, holistic view on how women approach their lives in motherhood.
