"Being a mother is not a ‘bug or penalty’ in business but a key-feature for future leadership and business success."
Acceleration beyond technology is needed for sustainable growth - mothers have this ingrained in their DNA.
based on the Bright Horizons Modern Family Index report

Caring, kind, conscious, dedicated, empathic, patient ... all characteristics urgently needed in business
Instead of just managing, mothers lead by caring for the people around them, next generations and future ecosystems.

Mother nature or mother ship? That's where it all starts. Let's bring this back into crucial conversations.
Servant -, Collaborative -, Autonomous -, Compassionate -, Positive -, Conscious -, Agile Leadership ... all attributes mothers are leading by.
Do you need more research and experiences showing why hiring mothers into leadership roles is crucial for future success?
Business as a force for creating value for society - with mothers at the helm.
We believe, the purpose of business is creating value for people and the planet, holding the space for everyone to shine and bring their talents to the greater whole, to collaborate and co-create solutions which tackle the biggest challenges of our times.
We as a society accomplished a lot. Now we reached a time where 'mothership' comes before 'leadership - holding the space and vision for future generations before our present benefits.
It's time to change the way we create the Future. With a mothering mindset, foresight thinking and care'ship we are able to shift the conversation and create the best solutions for next generations
Who is best equipped for leading the way?
We are still following an old paradigm, created on a model of the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century. To move towards a sustainable future we have to shift our thinking and actions towards an integrative approach which leads by love instead of power, cares more than it manages, places curiosity before knowledge and is built for future generations. We are holding space for the exceptional impact of mothers.
Not everyone is as privileged to choose to work, instead having to provide for a whole family and sometimes even a village. As it takes a village to raise a child, we are eager to support these moms and parents by giving regularly. Unicorns show up in many different ways, not just in Silicon Valley.

We are hiring
As kids grow fast, so do we. Looking for an Intern who loves to write, research and organize the chaos of a start-up. Do you see a future with less stress, better opportunities for everyone, equal share and a healthy environment. We love to have you with us.
Ute Trunte, Amazon
You can have it all - sure. The barrier is our perspective, the support system we build on and the mindset of what we truly want. The Inner Compass program was a great way to find strength, focus and direction for the next chapter of my life and leadership engagement. With the highlight of connecting with mothers from around the world. Truly inspiring.
Voices & Appraisals
Michael Nuesser, Vodafone
Motherhood is a boot-camp in agile mindset and behavior. So many parallels showcase how well equipped moms are for leading in the NEW WORK style and context. Collaborative, agile and conscious. I wish more moms could get the chance to step up and bring their full self to the table of decision making - just like the ones presented in the Summit.
Cristina Constantin, Microsoft
To see again how much we have in common and how unique we still are was a key insight for me in joining the Moms Who Lead program and support the storytelling journey initiative.We can learn so much from each-other and become stronger as moms and leaders when we connect to others and our own Inner North.
