MBA co-sponsors forum to address issues that mothers face in the workplace
Detours and OnRamps provides resources for working moms to have rewarding careers
The MBA is proud to co-sponsor the Detours and OnRamps Forum, a program designed to address the needs and issues of mothers, especially those grappling with their choice to work full time, part time, or from home.
The day-long conference will be at Bentley College in Waltham on Thursday, May 15 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The $125 registration fee covers breakfast, lunch and snacks, a full day of sessions, and a “Working Mother’s Toolkit” filled with discounts and reading material to help women succed in the job hunt and achieve life-work balance.

The forum was designed to bring intelligent women together to discuss the issues facing us all - because women and the marketplace both benefit when talented, well-educated mothers can contribute both at home and at work.
Through networking with fellow working mothers, discussions with the companies leading the way in solutions for working mothers, and panels and sessions on some of the most common issues faced by mothers who elect to work outside the home, Detours and OnRamps aims to provide a forum for women to meet, examine their options, and figure out their next steps.
With career resources and expert advice offered through panel discussions, small-group sessions, and networking opportunities, the hope is that mothers will leave the Detours and OnRamps Forum feeling more in control of their choices and options - and reassured that as intelligent, educated women, their contributions still matter.
