Every year She Runs It recognizes professionals in marketing, media and tech who brilliantly navigate the complex responsibilities of business, leadership, advocacy, and motherhood. These remarkable, multitasking moms serve as strong role models and mentors to others, inspiring their coworkers, families and communities with their talent and tenacity.

In a year that presented unthinkable challenges and hit working parents particularly hard, we salute the courage, creativity, stamina and strength of our 2021 Working Mothers of the Year. Please join She Runs It and our community in honoring – and learning from – the 2021 Working Mothers of the Year during a virtual ceremony at 5 pm on February 25th. Tickets can be reserve here.
