platform that inspires, encourages and guides modern ambitious women to live to their highest potential in motherhood.

The core focus of this event is to address your needs as a modern mother who wants to advance in her career, develop a network that can level you up in areas that are important to you. Or perhaps you are looking for a new career, looking to start a business or transitioning from being a slay-at-home-mother to a part-time gig, side-hustle or full-time. 

We are a one-stop shop for the modern woman who is redefining work, parenting, and success on her own terms. Come network with ambitious women in our community – thought leaders, innovators, CEOs, professionals, investors and more! 

Let's celebrate you and our collective accomplishments as we aim to live bigger, fuller, and deeper lives in 2019 and beyond. PS: Childcare with optimal play opportunities will be provided at no cost and parking at this event is free. Zero excuses!

Last year, we saw women rise to high places – engaged, energized, and resolute than ever. Women are using their voice and influence in their personal and professional lives while demanding change within their community. On March 9th, Mother Honestly is celebrating the accomplishments of women as we forge a more gender-balanced access to capital, equal pay across all fields, while running for office and co-establishing policies that creates meaningful change in our society, environment and our future generations to come.

 Join us for a wonderful gathering of like-minded women who are trailblazers and changemakers within our community in small and big ways. Our morning will start with refreshments, heavy networking with companies, businesses and powerhouse women, fireside panel chats, pop ups and all the things you love about a Mother Honestly event.
