Moms are one of the most powerful forces in our world. They create the future of our society by forming the health, perspective and opportunities for our families, communities and world. And digital media has given mothers everywhere new opportunities to share, learn, advocate and create change for the health, security and opportunities of their families—and for other mothers worldwide.
What matters to them? We asked and Moms answered. Mom+Social will be an extraordinary one-day Summit that culminates The Global Mom Relay. This 60-day online conversation has brought together today’s leading global and local voices as part of a unique social media relay to discuss the importance of strengthening the health of mothers and children around the world.
At Mom+Social, we will gather to share the top issues that these women and men shared, and the global conversation that ensued. Six key themes we saw trend during the Global Mom Relay will frame a unique dialogue, in person and online: supporting maternal health, both physical and emotional; empowering and inspiring girls; addressing urgent issues that endanger women globally; ensuring maternal and newborn medical care; building strong communities; and uniting moms for change. Mothers want to address these issues for every family and every child.
Together, the reach of social media and the power of motherhood have the potential to change a generation for good. Moms are on the frontlines of what is possible. That’s why they should be at the forefront of the global agenda. That is why you will be part of Mom+Social on May 8.
Mom+Social is a special, one-day gathering focused on motherhood and the role of social media, technology and philanthropy to improve the health of moms and children everywhere. Hundreds of the brightest and most passionate people working to improve child, maternal and reproductive health will gather on May 8, 2013 at 92YTribeca in New York City to share ideas, raise awareness and inspire action. This unique gathering will focus the world’s attention on ways to address some of the greatest health challenges affecting women and children today. Anyone, from anywhere, will be able to participate in the dialogue by tuning into the speeches, discussion and panels via live stream and social media.
