How we RISE

Let's close the representation & pay gap in the workplace

Women have the power, courage, and talent to lift their families up by their bootstraps...but the shoes have to fit. MomProject.org is the community, support, and platform that sees her, and elevates her without compromising her authenticity.


Greater income. Greater advancement opportunity.

Advancing in a career is challenging for all moms, but inequality for moms of color makes getting ahead even harder. RISE, powered by MomProject.org, empowers women to accelerate their careers and earning potential in a way that's attainable and realistic, setting moms up for success.
