Also known as the “TED talks of the parenting world,” Mindr creates world-class development opportunities for working parents, and works with companies across a range of industries to attract, engage and retain women and parents. We partnered with the United Nations to host the first baby-friendly event in UN history, bringing 600 new parents and their babies to United Nations Headquarters on International Women's Day for a discussion featuring Under-Secretary General Izumi Nakamitsu and others. We were also recently profiled in the New Yorker for our work with Nobel Peace Prize recipient and mom of two Beatrice Fihn.
Big thanks to mama Kelly Rowland for shouting out to Mindr’s support of millennial parents working their way through the ins and outs of new parenthood. The feeling is mutual!
Beatrice Fihn, the antinuclear activist, walked into a Tribeca café to address sixty new mothers and their children. “It’s not so different than the U.N., you know,” she told the group. “Lots of crybabies.”
Did you know that mothers lose 7% of their earning ability for every child? Or that they're paid 71c for every dollar paid to a father? Our founder Sarah laid down some facts, and solutions, at TEDx.
We partnered with the UN Foundation and the Women's International Forum to bring mamas and their babes together at the United Nations and at sister meetups in 60+ cities worldwide.
Beatrice Fihn accepted the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of ICAN, and recently talked to the Mindr community at Maman in Tribeca about how motherhood has strengthened her along her journey.
