Updated: FairyGodBoss, FindMyFlock and The Mom Project are also on this list. The Mom Project was founded in 2016 when CEO Allison Robinson – on maternity leave from her strategy role on the Pampers North America team – read a Harvard Business Review study showing that 43% of skilled women exit the workforce after having children. Frustrated by a lack of solutions despite the media attention, Robinson set out to solve the problem on a national scale.
