The Support Group for Working Mothers at Mason is one way Mason faculty, staff, and students can come together, discuss the issues confronting working mothers, and perhaps motivate changes on campus.

The group hosts brown bag lunch meetings at noon in the Women and Gender Studies Center (Johnson Center, Room 240K). Upcoming fall meetings:

  • November 14
  • December 3

If you are interested in sharing stories and being part of an informal organization of working mothers, please join us, and feel free to visit our website for additional information:
