What Mothers Want at Work in 2024
A free workshop to Support Human Resources Professionals

We invite you to join Maturn Co-Founders Jen Murtagh & Sonja Baikogli Foley for a FREE LIVE ONLINE workshop that will shed light on the impact of maternity leave in Canada, how maternal bias fuels inequity and share effective strategies to create equitable and inclusive organizations that help mothers thrive.

It’s time to flip the motherhood penalty on its head and create the motherhood opportunity. As a human resources leader within your organization, you have a unique ability to advance equity and better support the experiences of mothers, at work and through the transitions of maternity leave. 

The Workshop

As a result of attending this workshop, you will:

Gain a deeper understanding of the motherhood penalty and how it creates barriers to women’s full participation at work.

Learn about Maturn’s National Research Study – EXPECTING MORE: The Motherhood Penalty and Its Impact in Canada which outlines what mothers want at work in order to stay and grow within inclusive work cultures.

Receive concrete tools and resources to bring back to your organization that will create more equity for mothers.

Learn strategies to combat the motherhood penalty and how you and your organization can fully support mothers before, during and after maternity leave.

Who it’s for: This workshop is designed for leaders working in human resources, people & culture and/or diversity, equity & inclusion.

When: Thursday, June 13th, 2024 at 12pm PST / 3pm EST

Register to reserve your FREE spot. Limited spots available.

Sonja Baikogli Foley, Co-Founder

Sonja holds 15+ years of diverse experience in non-profit, public and private organizations and has always been drawn towards impact-driven work that genuinely makes a difference in the lives of others.
