NEW YORK, Oct. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- HeyMama, the fastest growing private online community of working and entrepreneurial moms, is proud to announce their 2021 HeyMama Summit, powered by Lincoln. World-renowned journalist Katie Couric, television personality, fashion designer, and author Whitney Port, as well as Founder and Managing Partner of Reign Venture Capital, Monique Idllett-Mosley, and CEO and Co-Founder of Ellevest, Sallie Krawcheck, will all be speaking at the two-day event.

The HeyMama Summit, powered by Lincoln, will feature Katie Couric and Whitney Port discussing how moms can make money.

Held on Oct. 22-Oct. 23, the virtual event will discuss all things money: how moms can raise it, keep it, grow it, and secure it for themselves, their families, and their businesses. Numerous online workshops, fireside chats, and panels will discuss everything from startups and fundraising, side hustles, making the most out of a corporate career path, how to hire talent and grow teams, how to negotiate for adequate compensation, and how to reach financial equity in the workplace.

"We've all felt, to varying degrees, the financial impact of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic," Erika Feldhus, CEO of HeyMama, said. "At HeyMama, we have also seen the creativity, perseverance, and resiliency of working moms, who are finding new and innovative ways to maintain and even grow their finances during this time. Now, arguably more than ever, it is the perfect moment to talk about money openly, honestly, and in a community of like-minded people who are willing to mentor, share, and support entrepreneurial and working moms as they set and reach their career goals."

An estimated 300,000 women left the workforce in September, 2021 — one of the largest dropoffs of women from the labor force since the pandemic began. As a result of Covid-19, moms cut their work hours four times more than fathers, and while more and more people are returning to work, millions of women have not due to a lack of childcare access and a lingering unequal division of labor inside the home.
