“Too many women are still suffering in silence and we need to work together to drive change across the UK”
Mum’s Enterprise Ltd, a company dedicated to facilitating positive change and gender equality across the nation, have today launched their report; ‘FROM CAREER WOMAN TO WORKING MUM’ to coincide with Maternal Mental Heal Awareness Week 2018.
This is the first initiative launched as part of their ‘Happiness Project’, a campaign dedicated to supporting a happier nation. The thought provoking and sensitive report has been collated drawing on this insight of over 1,000 mums across the UK and this free resource is available to download now.
The report explores what mothers desire to feel fulfilled and happy in their working lives, post-children. It offers real insight, sharing tangible comparisons of happiness levels throughout the journey of motherhood. It explores women’s hopes and dreams and the fears that all to often hold them back from making a positive change in their work or business lives.
Lucy Chaplin, Creative Director comments, “Too many women are still suffering in silence and we need to work together to drive change across the UK. I hope that this report will draw attention to the plight of professional mums who have worked hard to get somewhere, only lose confidence and feel guilty when they have children and that businesses will recognise that more flexible working patterns could make millions of workers happier and more productive and help them retain talent.”
Lindsey Fish, Founder and CEO of Mum’s Enterprise comments, “Everything about the work we do here at Mum's Enterprise Ltd comes down to one purpose, and that is to help change the work and business lives of mums for the better forever. We have been working hard for three years to get to this point, we have organised five exhibitions in this time with two more planned, our biggest yet this year and I am excited about the change we are helping make happen across the nation.”
“The launch of our independent report; 'Career Woman to Working Mum', is the first of many initiatives we have planned. I am very passionate and conscious myself about the precarious impact becoming a mother overnight and in the years that follow has on your mental health and well being. I truly intend to make it my life’s work to continue on our mission to help millions #shootforthemoon.”
By 2020 Mums Enterprise Ltd intends to prove that is has had a positive impact on the UK Economy by helping more women find and return to work, increase the number of female startups and boosted job creation through growing female led businesses.
