SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP (SIG): MOTHERS CONNECT

The Mothers Connect Group is focused on providing mothers information on parenting and other hot topics unique to working mothers. Our new programmes will focus on in-depth talks and panel discussions hosted by the subject-matter experts. The Professional Mothers’ Group caters to mums with children of all age groups.

Most of our members work, and thus we are continually trying to balance multiple priorities. Tell us your needs or interests and we’ll try to mobilise resources to help you out!
