Who We Are
Founded in 2016, Path Forward is on a mission to empower stay-at-home mothers and other
caregivers to restart their careers. We fulfill our mission by working with employers to launch, implement and expand returnships -- a specific workforce development program geared toward professionals with post-college work experience and a significant gap in their career due to unpaid caregiving. Our program changes the culture of teams and companies to create an environment where returning professionals can thrive. Our goal is for these programs to be ubiquitous in corporate America -- as common as campus recruiting, new grad cohorts and other programs aimed at attracting and retaining early career talent.
At Path Forward, we have created the type of culture we want to see in the workplace. Our team is driven every day by our mission and organizational values. Employees are encouraged to bring their whole selves to work and are valued for their diverse life and professional experiences. As a member of our team you will have the opportunity to thrive professionally while balancing your life outside of the office. We are purposeful in our mission to create meaningful and lasting change for mothers and all caregivers, and welcome you to join us.
Path Forward Program Managers are at the center of the work we do. Program Managers work with our partners to establish successful return-to-work programs, while providing support and guidance to those looking to restart their careers. We’ve now built returnship programs with more than 100 companies, including top employers like Amazon, Audible, Expedia, Disney Streaming and PepsiCo. We’ve built a brand that is well-recognized by employers and caregivers alike. We have welcomed more than 1,000 caregivers into returnship programs and more than 80% have converted into full-time jobs. (Read our 2021 Annual Report here.)
