When mothers thrive, families thrive. So do companies: Gender diverse companies are 15% more likely to financially outperform their competitors. They also outperform peers as it relates to innovation and sales.
That’s not happening enough today.
And, it’s leading 43% of highly qualified mothers to leave their careers or off-ramp for a period of time. Those who remain struggle to get ahead. Each of these outcomes are a result of the bias they confront at work and at home.
Unconscious bias or maternal bias is holding mothers back.
Our deeply rooted ideas about mothers lead us to perceive working mothers to be less committed to their careers, less competent in their jobs and less willing to go after opportunities than childfree female counterparts, let alone male colleagues overall.
Companies are losing out, too.
Today, companies lose 3 out of 5 of its most talented workers when women – many of them mothers – downscale their careers or leave it completely. This is creating a gap in talent and diversity in pipelines to senior leadership. The effect will only intensify as women continue to earn the majority of college degrees and come to dominate entry-level talent pools.
That’s where we come in.
