Trending: Amazon expands Bezos’ elite ‘S-team,’ adding 6 execs from emerging branches of the company

The dilemma of raising kids as a working mother arose when women entered the workforce en masse in the mid-1900s. A study from Edison Research published in 2018 shows most moms still shoulder the majority of parenting responsibilities — whether they work or not.  So how are some working moms handling those challenges? In celebration of Mother’s Day, Code Fellows is hosting the Power in Mothers panel on May 9. The panel will feature a variety of moms who work in the tech sector talking about the challenges they’ve faced and the victories they won throughout their careers.

Also in celebration of Mother’s Day, Democracy Lab is hosting Hack for Your Mother on May 11. This hackathon is open to the public and teams will be comprised not just of developers, but of professionals in other fields such as research and project management. The projects encompass a variety of community-driven missions from environmental issues to government transparency to reducing school violence.
