The Mom Project has always led the movement to help women from diverse backgrounds remain in the workforce. In late 2020 we launched a non-profit,, and its kick-off initiative, RISE. RISE is an upskilling certification program designed to center women and moms of color, and reach those who are traditionally underrepresented in the workforce. We are here to challenge stereotypes and create access to advancement in one’s career.

Certification programs work with your demanding schedule, as they can be completed at your own pace but must be completed within six months of your start date. The RISE program hosts community events, and provides professional support in optimizing your resume, linkedin profile, interview prep and more. We’ll also connect you to knowledgeable speakers and professionals in relevant fields to add to your educational experience. Once your certification is complete our team will assist with job search support and provide pathways to our diverse network of companies that value you, your experience, your career, and your family. All at no cost to you.
