Mothers in Business – a Finland-based network for career-oriented mothers

 

Mothers in Business (MiB) is a nationwide network that supports educated and career-oriented mothers in balancing work and family.

Our aim is to provide opportunities and tools for skills development, networking and career advancement, and also promote the role of mothers in the labour market and in society at large. Mothers in Business wants to help take society in a direction where a balanced family life is possible while at the same time parents or guardians can enjoy equal opportunities to follow their ambitions in working life.

The association was founded in 2015 and already has nearly 4,000 members throughout Finland. In addition to the Helsinki metropolitan area, Mothers in Business also operates in Tampere, Turku, Jyväskylä, Kuopio, Lahti area, Oulu, Rovaniemi and Vaasa.

Our members come from various sectors of society and from a wide range of professions, such as economists, doctors, lawyers, and professionals in the humanities.

Mothers in Business arranges discussion events, company visits, training sessions and workshops, mentoring, parties and other interesting happenings. The key underlying idea is that all of these events can be participated in along with children. The association also has an active peer-to-peer network and online discussion groups. All the activities are made possible by the voluntary efforts of our active members, of which there are currently about 250. Mothers in Business also has two employees at its office in Tampere.

Our activities are in Finnish, but there is an opportunity to organise English language events. Contact your local volunteers and ask about different options!
