Creating “YOU”r Community

Perhaps you’re trying to keeping a toe in the workplace waters while other parts of your life take precedence (kids, aging parents). Or maybe this is heads-down time in your professional life (working to reach the leadership table). Either way, being involved in a community of like-minded individuals and subject matter experts can do wonders for your career. A robust support system with access to new connections and information provides encouragement and companionship.

With this in mind, Mom Corps created an interactive community for professionals seeking support and resources for better integrating professional and personal lives. Mom Corps YOU is about taking ownership of your life. Professionals of all levels can have exclusive access to tenured career experts as they discuss and share best practices on topics such as the truths of flexible work, a game plan for re-launching your career, building a personal brand, and what to do now if you plan to return to work later. Members can also connect with one another through the Mom Corps YOU community and network with other professionals who share the common goal of helping each other succeed.

Mom Corps YOU has partnered with renowned speakers to offer those hungry for knowledge expert advice online through biweekly webinar and chat series on career, personal finance, and health and wellness topics. The schedule includes: Tory Johnson, weekly contributor on ABC’s Good Morning America and #1 New York Times bestselling author of “The Shift;” Dr. Taz Bhatia, founder and Medical Director of the Atlanta Center for Holistic and Integrative Medicine; Lee Woodruff, co-founder of the Bob Woodruff Foundation and co-author of “In an Instant;” Samantha Walravens, author of “Torn: True Stories of Kids, Career and the Conflict of Modern Motherhood;” Jennifer Owens, editorial director for Working Mother Media; and Lisa Belkin, senior columnist for Huffington Post.

The constant quest to achieve work-life satisfaction is often a struggle because people are focused on variables out of their control such as extended work hours. Mom Corps YOU is about shifting the power and understanding where you do have control and how to make changes over the course of your career and your life.
