Our Vision

Working Moms of Milwaukee’s vision is to create positive spaces both online and in person for working mothers in the Milwaukee area. As working mothers, it is often difficult to network after hours and meet other like-minded professionals that just “get it!” Through our supportive spaces, moms can connect both online and in person, develop friendships, network professionally and access services to make the day-to-day a little easier, while celebrating this crazy life stage together!

Our Story

Working Moms of Milwaukee was created in December 2017 by one local mom who needed some more support. In talking with other working moms, she found that there is a large community need for a local organization that combines these core elements:

  • Mothers in Milwaukee who work full-time, part-time and/or remotely
  • Networking with other moms from different backgrounds, fields and professions
  • Making it easy to network online and in person and socializing in time frames that work for busy families
  • Engaging events that celebrate Milwaukee and encourage authentic connections
  • Support and sharing daily working mom experiences w/ other moms that just “get it!”
  • Blog content that’s relateable and useful for working moms
  • An organization that addresses the needs of working moms in our community
