While the number of women entering the workforce is greater than the number of men, fewer than 10% of Fortune 500 companies are led by women. Why this gap? There’s no dialogue with young women to prepare them for upcoming life choices. There’s little support for new moms in retaining their skills and connections. There’s no education to help partners align with sharing household and parenting responsibilities. Corporate and government policies are lackluster. As it stands, a woman with a flourishing career and great potential needs to start over after taking 2 or 3 years off for children.

Laddrr is our solution — a coalition of enterprises and institutions bringing innovation throughout the whole journey of parenthood, from planning through pregnancy and child-rearing. We bring support to young adults, parents-to-be, parents, and corporate managers. And we partner with organizations and companies worldwide to change culture, policies, and processes.


The Laddrr founding team includes members in all stages of parenthood who have balanced kids and careers in different ways. Some of us have worked throughout our parenting journeys. Others took career breaks that were longer than we’d planned… and harder to recover from than we’d anticipated. One of us is a new parent just now finding her own balance. Another is exploring her path to motherhood. All of us agree the landscape for working moms needs to change.
