Our mission is to improve the parental leave experience for everyone: the expecting employee, their manager, peers, direct reports and business leaders.

Research shows that longer parental leaves result in lower lifetime earnings, career regression and a widening of the gender wage gap.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

We believe parental leave can be a career and business accelerator - improving productivity, up-leveling teams, accelerating critical business milestones.

We’re here to help companies and individuals turn parental leave into their competitive advantage.
