This year’s PowerMom Day begins on May 10 at 10am and includes a panel discussion with influential moms, a series of community table discussions, and an awards ceremony followed by a cocktail and networking hour.
Who’ll be there?
The 2018 PowerMom Day panel will consist of Rachel Blumenthal, Rockets of Awesome founder; Massy Arias, fitness health influencer; Julia Dennison, Parents magazine digital director; and Kate Davis, Fast Company senior editor. Lola Ogunnaike, People TV anchor, will moderate the discussion. In selecting the panelists, Davis looked for “women that we all admire and can aspire to be, who we see are successful in their career but are also moms,” who you can imagine “probably face the same sort of challenges that we face as everyday moms.”
She hopes that the panelists’ experiences will give moms ideas for how they can handle “what happens when the kid’s sick, but you have a meeting that you need to lead.” “These are stories that are universal,” she explains, “but we also like to hear their take on how they dealt with it.” Davis believes that a panel with such diverse experience will not only engage every woman in attendance, but also defy assumptions often made about successful working moms.
