Since launching in 2021 MotherBoard’s mission has focused on retaining women in tech by helping employers understand the direct link between motherhood and poor attrition rates. Although mother inclusion is now firmly on the agenda for most companies, the work is far from done. We must continue to progress and work collectively to create real, tangible change for women & mothers working in tech.
This year has been pivotal for MotherBoard. We’ve spoken at some of the UK’s leading tech events, worked on government-led projects to highlight the importance of motherhood and its link to the skill gap in tech, doubled our community, and revolutionised our operations to encourage tech companies of all sizes to join our mission.
As we head into 2024, we have some exciting projects in the pipeline, including a partnership with Tech Talent Charter, which will be published early next year and launching our signatory exclusive learning webinars.
Real change takes time and none of this would have been possible without the continued support of our signatories, sponsor, partners, community and the MotherBoard team. So, I would like to express my gratitude to all of them.
