New York-based PricewaterhouseCoopers is working to retain its working women by pairing them with other PwC moms and then allowing them to take up to five years off after a birth.
“Mentor Moms” connects each new mother or mother-to-be with a colleague in her regional office who also is a working mom. Mentors offer support and guidance about the transition fromback to work. More than 250 women from 45 of the organization’s U.S. offices have volunteered as mentors. About 80 pairs work together at any time.
The consulting firm’s “Full Circle” program allows parents to take up to five years away from work to devote themselves to full-time parenting and then return to the firm. While they’re away, participants stay in touch with colleagues and friends at the firm and can take advantage of training and resources to help them stay professionally up-to-date.
