Our mission

Ever heard of the motherhood wall? Well it's a real term used to describe the large obstacle many parents face when returning to work following a parental break. Our aim is to share the high's and lows of returning to work after a long absence, and develop and discuss ways to re-ignite your career (or not).

About our Circle

  • Meets once a month
  • Looking for members

This group is aimed at parents and carers, who have returned to work following a parental leave break (e.g Maternity, Paternity, Adoption etc). Plan is to start meetings late April / early May.
