MEET THE MOM PROJECT: A NEW KIND OF DIGITAL TALENT MARKETPLACE
After her maternity leave in 2016, Allison Robinson found it difficult to balance her job with her bouncing baby. She also found that she wasn’t alone. An estimated 47% of highly skilled women leave the workforce after having kids.
This critical loss for both mothers and the economy birthed Allison’s next baby: The Mom Project—a digital talent marketplace that connects mothers to flexible job opportunities with world-class employers.
The Mom Project blurs the lines between recruitment and a movement. They advise both jobseekers and companies about how to get the most from each other, and they’re making major waves.
In just four years, The Mom Project has grown up. They have over 100 employees across the US, 275K professionals in their community network and 2,000+ partner companies signed on to hire with them. They’ve connected super-talented professionals to over $50M in economic opportunity, and they’ve raised an unbelievable $36M in funding.
- 94% of their moms have Bachelor’s degrees
- 40% hold advanced degrees
- They average 8-10 years of experience
- 72% of them are active in the workforce
- They have talent in all 50 US States!
With The Mom Project, Allison struck a chord. Not just with women, but also with men who saw the frustrations of their wives, moms, daughters and sisters. She’s changing families, and she’s transforming the workforce based on one simple piece of advice.
“Work hard and be nice.”
