Tet Salva, the Founder of MomWarrior spoke at the Intuit Women Network event on 2018 International Women’s Day. She brought her talented team to provide personal advice and group workshops to help us think about how to balance between career and family. Her fireside chat was extremely inspiring and her team provided insightful tips for our network members. Thank you for being an advocate for this difficult challenge, especially for the parents in the crowd. We hope other companies and employee networks can also get an opportunity to work closely with MomWarrior to experience your insights and guidance.

“The good fight.”
As a longtime working mom, I was delighted to be part of the “good fight,” confronting the issues facing working mothers. It’s still a challenge to have a great career and be a great mom, but the conference reminded me how worthwhile it can be! I was inspired by the stories of the other working mothers, and excited to be starting a new business that will give me more flexibility for family time. Thank you, Tet, for hosting such a terrific conference! I hope you will do more.

Women at the conference — both speakers and participants — said that although the movement to achieve balance and find energy for work-family lifestyles will require girls and women to join and mentor each other, boys and men play a role.

“I am not alone.”
As a working parent juggling multiple shifts, I found this conference invaluable. The event became a friendly reminder that I am not alone, I picked up new tips and tricks, and in the process I was able to expand my network. As an advocate of women advancement in Corporate America, MomWarrior provides a platform to learn and support each other. Definitely should be on your planner to attend.

“Truthful and empowering.”
I was thrilled to be a speaker at MomWarrior’s inaugural conference made by, for and about moms. I always want to be part of a truthful and empowering dialog about the challenges and opportunities of being a working mom. MomWarrior is committed to sparking change through open dialogue and as an entrepreneur, inventor and working mom it was awesome to have a frank discussion about the badassery of women. The vibe was great, the audience was engaged and the world needs MomWarrior to keep talkin’ the talk.

"I love MomWarrior!"
I had the privilege to keynote two MomWarrior events, one in the Bay Area and one in Los Angeles. MomWarrior is a unique conference that tackles issues more relevant to one of the unspoken heroes of the modern era...Moms. It was one of the few events where we all found it incredibly empowering to be among women going through motherhood together. I love MomWarrior!
— Jill Salzman, Founder of The Founding Moms
“I was blown away! A truly inspiring day!”
I am delighted to say that I participated in the first ever Mom Warrior Conference! Through discussions, activities, panels, and presentations, I was blown away with each new part of the day. Through reflection and deliberately challenging activities, I connected many different pieces of my life and realized how being a mother and a daughter is what gives me strength and clarity. The speakers were PHENOMENAL - wise CEOs, businesswomen, entrepreneurs, poets, authors, and so much more! We were all moved to tears and laughter several times throughout the day. It was a truly inspiring day!

“I can't wait to return for another event!”
The MomWarrior 2017 conference in Los Angeles was a warm, welcoming group of BOSSES—women at different points in their parenthood and work journeys, discussing their ambitions, the obstacles they encounter, and how best to lift one another up. As a speaker and an audience member, I heard a wonderful range of perspectives, and I made both work contacts and friends. I can't wait to return for another event!
