What is the Mother Gap, you say? Whether you had an actual career break or are juggling in the “messy middle” of motherhood and career, you’ll understand the “mother” gap. It’s all the years women take for caregiving of other humans.

We believe deeply that these caregiving years should be viewed as an asset and that it’s time for employers to #MindTheMotherGap. It’s TIME for employers to create programs that make it easier for women to work and care-give at the same time, and to welcome back those who left the workforce to take care of others.

We’re thrilled to say the corporate partners on Après are committed to this cause. It’s time for more to join them.

This Mother’s Day, we invite you to join us in spreading the word about #MindTheMotherGap.


Après is a career resource for women returning to work after a break or transitioning within the workforce. Reconnect with your professional self — search jobs, get inspired, find resources, and refresh your skills. Join our community of women helping women.
