Wise words from Michelle Obama
I had the privilege and honor of seeing Michelle Obama speak today at the Inbound 2017 conference. When asked about how she is able to maintain her grace, she said "One thing that guides my grace is my children and other children. How they see me reacting gives them guidance." That's a huge part of what Moms as Mentors is founded upon. We encourage moms to not just encourage confidence in their girls, but to exhibit/model confidence themselves, even when it's difficult to do so.
It's also why we are so encouraged to find out that, while not an explicit goal of our programs, 75% of participating moms have felt their OWN confidence and leadership skills improved after attending one. More confident moms means more confident girls! It also means more confident women leaders in the workforce and in our communities. And that doesn't just benefit women and girls, it benefits everyone (and if you need convincing, here are just a few reasons why).

And thanks to Michelle Obama, for being a tireless advocate for girls and an inspirational mom and mentor to so many.
