About the Workshop
Join NYU, Komae, TendLab, and Moms Hierarchy of Needs for the first of three parts of the new series for working moms, Surviving Matrescence: Motherhood and Staying Whole.
In this one-hour workshop led by Tendlab’s Amy Henderson, we dig into:
- Systemic biases working against moms at work,
- Why it’s harder to be a working parent in the U.S. than in any other developed nation in the world, and
- The critical nature of support – especially peer support – in navigating through motherhood.
We welcome you to bring your coffee and your thoughts. Also, your children, because we get it.
