Why contribute to The Rise of the Working Mother Campaign?
I have interacted with ambitious working mothers from all walks of life to learn more about their challenges, their hopes, and their dreams. Of all the mothers I interviewed, more than 65 percent said they experienced at least one time in their lives where they struggled to balance work and home. Of that number, a great number of them revealed that they were not satisfied with where they were in their careers. They expressed that it was difficult to reach the top because they felt it conflicted with their responsibilities as a mother.
This has to stop.
I want the Rise of the Working Mother documentary to shed light on these challenges and offer solutions on how to best address them. No mom should be prohibited from reaching her dreams just because she has children. No mother should be held back from reaching her full potential because she has a life outside of her career. And moms shouldn’t have to feel guilty for pursuing passions outside of their homes.
Why can’t moms have it all?
Why can’t the workplace evolve to meet the needs of mothers?
Why can’t we do better?
I think we can.
That’s why I’m doing this documentary. I want to shed light on these issues, give ambitious working mothers a real voice, share viable solutions to successfully integrate work and home, AND be on top of your game while at work.
It is possible.
We can do this. Together.
How much money are you raising? Where will my money go too?
I am raising $10,000 to cover the cost of production, film crew, interview sites, post production, graphics and showing.
Can I contribute if I'm not located in Nashville?
Yes. Anyone can contribute. If you are out of town and you purchased a reward level that includes a VIP ticket for the showing, you will receive exclusive access to a virtual premiere screening of The Rise of the Working Mother documentary.
When will I receive my reward?
We will sending our wonderful rewards beginning the first week of June 2017.
I want to sponsor a city to show your documentary. Can I decide what city to show the documentary in?
If you contribute at the Founding Producer, Touring Sponsor Level, you will have the ability to host a showing of The Rise of The Working Mother documentary at a city of your choice. Travel is included at this level. Venue expenses are not covered and will need to be taken care of by the contributor.
What are some potential risks and challenges you will face in producing your project?
With all great dreams and goals, there are risks. The risks that we have identified are possible delays in the completion of the documentary. But the great news is, we WILL be working diligently to make sure that it is completed successfully with high quality and full capture of the challenges that ambitious working mothers face while striving to reach new heights in their career.
I want to support but I don't have the money at this time to contribute. How else can I help?
No worries. Tell a friend. Better yet, tell all of your friends! I’d be grateful if you could share a link to the campaign on your social media channels. I’d be even more grateful if you could encourage a friend to contribute.
That would be the greatest reward ever!
