Reframing Motherhood Conference Speaker -- May 13, 2019

BerlinCameron_5_13_2019.jpg

At Berlin Cameron’s “Reframing Motherhood” Conference, on Monday, May 13th — I held a breakout session as part of the day’s programming of events. My session was, “The Non-Judgmental Mom Zone” (see pic above), in which I led a talking circle, about the value of having vulnerable conversations around judgment and motherhood — especially as working moms. If we want to change society’s perception of working moms, we first need to change the way we judge ourselves. Honest conversation has to start internally — among us, and can then expand to larger conversations to effect change. Attendees shared the ways in which they judge themselves as mothers, how they compare themselves to other moms in their communities, how they judge themselves as working moms, and how they feel judged as working moms.

The REturnity Project (TRP): feature story, jan 17

Excerpt: TRP: “You recently held an event at The Motherhood Center in New York with over 40 women, where they all talked about mental health, their sex lives, their feelings about their postpartum bodies, and deep-rooted biases they experienced in the workplace. What do you think inspires these women to open up and talk about their experiences?” ABC:  “I think, as an organizer, I make it really clear that the intention of the evening is to share, and that the space is one in which they will not be judged. But you can’t just come out of nowhere, as a stranger, and ask people to tell you their secrets. You have to build a trust.” [Read the rest here.]
