6. Allison Robinson, The Mom Project

Allison Robinson spent 8 years as a marketing executive for Pampers, but not until having her first child in 2015 did she realize how hard it was to juggle motherhood and a full-time career. To make that easier for other working moms, in 2016 she founded The Mom Project, an online career destination that connects professional women seeking work-life balance with jobs at leading companies.

Today, over 75,000 women are members and some 1,000 companies list opportunities on the site. Committed to helping women remain active in the workforce, Robinson has launched the Women’s Work Initiative™, which works with employers to design workplaces that support working mothers.
