CEO and Founder

"I believe that we are all capable of achieving brilliant things. But as a working parent, I know only too well that you can't do it alone. To find your groove - especially as you navigate the ins and outs of parental leave, challenge gendered expectations and advance your career- you need a tribe that supports, from whom you can learn, and of course give back.  
To all the brilliant parents out there, whether you're the first Dad to take parental leave in your organisation, or you're a working mum trying to get your old job back, join us - in being bold, speaking up, putting your hand up, and asking for more. We are your tribe. We promise to have your back."
