About us

MAMAGORA is an Association founded in 2018.

 

We support mothers to enter or re-enter the workforce, connect, co-work on our online platform and in the real world. We invite everyone to participate in creating a more diverse, more equal, and family-friendly work-life-scene in Switzerland. Join us to take action together to redefine our contribution to work, and to choose how we strike the balance between work and home.

 

Our goal is to build a community who will lead the change for working mothers to take action together to redefine our contribution to work, to choose how we strike the balance between work and home in order to keep our families intact, and ultimately revolutionize the workplace.

 

Together we empower mothers to find community, make deep connections, gain confidence, access tools and take the decisive first step to journey beyond self-discovery into meaningful work.

THE AGORA

The AGORA used to be the central public space in ancient Greek city-states. The word means gathering places or assembly and the agora was the centre of the athletic, artistic, spiritual, and political life of the city. This fits perfectly the idea of MAMAGORA as an assembly of thought, discussion, help, sale, and promotion for MAMAs in Switzerland.

 

 

UNITY MAKES US STRONG

The conditions for working mothers in Switzerland are difficult. Despite being highly qualified many of us struggle to get challenging and interesting jobs that still allow us a fair balance between work and family life. There is so much energy, power, and synergy in putting together our professional talent, ideas, and capacity! We need to support each other – and this is now possible within the MAMAGORA community. Online and offline.

 

YOUR NEEDS, YOUR TERMS

Whether you’re are an idea maker, business owner, or someone who wants to contribute to a project, network, write a blog, promote an event, post, search, discuss, advertise, inspire or just get inspired within any professional work area – MAMAGORA is for you! It is all about your preferences, needs, and capacity – and about connecting and sharing.

 

ACTUALLY, EVERYONE IS WELCOME

Actually, everyone is welcome, as long as your attitude towards flexible work life and gender equality is positive and progressive. We invite you to participate in creating a more diverse, more equal, and family-friendly work-life-scene in Switzerland. 

 

YOU MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

If you join the community now, you’ll be part of an empowered community that carries out visions and collaborate the way that fits each and every one of us the most. Together and only together we can make a difference.

 

We are just taking off, so we kindly ask you to be patient with us. Take your part of this journey and let’s do this together online and offline. Let’s not be perfect – but make an effort together! Your feedback is really important to us. We greatly appreciate your taking the time to help us and make MAMAGORA community valuable to everyone.

 

We hope to see you here and we look forward to meeting you in person soon. Please spread the word and feel free to share your ideas with us.
