Wishing each mother, grandmother, stepmother, and mother figure a very happy mother's day! Your care and guidance of the younger generation make a huge difference.

05/05/2022

68% of women with children under age 18 were in the labor force during 2021. Women still face an uphill battle in the workplace, and Alabama was ranked below average for every category studied (average is 25), and among the worst for several categories. Alabama, the time has come to step up the game.

Momentum was very fortunate to have three wonderful interns this spring semester. Did you get the chance to meet Hallie Isom at Momentum Conference? We have been very thrilled to have her with us! Here's a little more about her in her own words:

Hello! My name is Hallie Isom, and I have had the fantastic honor of interning with Momentum this semester. I am a senior at Samford University, where I am studying Marketing with a concentration in Social Entrepreneurship. During my time at Samford, I was able to be an active member and serve in multiple leadership roles within my sorority, Delta Delta Delta. I am delighted to graduate this Spring and enter this next exciting chapter. After graduation, I will move to my hometown, Charlotte, North Carolina, and begin working full-time in the nonprofit world. In my free time, I love reading and exploring the city of Birmingham with my friends.

🌠 We wish Hallie the best—her future is very bright!
