Think of the word “mother” - what kinds of attributes come to mind? Now, do the same thing for the word “boss.” Did you think of different kinds of people, different qualities, maybe even -- gasp!-- different genders?
It's time to merge those visions, mamas. We know so many of you are navigating the competing demands of motherhood and work, and we want to know more about who you are and what you do. We're especially interested in, and impressed with, the ways motherhood bolsters a woman's confidence, focus, and leadership skills. Being a mother isn't a detriment to a workplace, it's an asset, and we want to show that to the world.
We're starting a Detroit Mama Boss Series, where we showcase Boss Mamas from all over Metro Detroit. This is about more than work/life balance, this is about seeing motherhood as an advantage in our professional lives, instead of a barrier to success.
