SYNOPSIS:

We recently sat down and interviewed 16 children under the age of 10 and asked them about their mums and why they go to work. They saw their mums as the complete package: they were women who loved them, who made them feel safe, but they were also their role models. And a quarter of the way through the interviews, we had already identified a theme - happiness. To their kids, the mums were living, breathing examples of big dreams and hard work; of the fulfilment work can bring, and of the importance of doing something you enjoy, which aligns with your passions and values. Their children could see the way work connected their mothers to broader purpose, and the joy that brought them.
