Amy Lynch with Baby: Impact Academy Participant 2018

After spending the better part of a decade as a freelance and remote worker in Australia, Ireland, and England, I returned to Canada as a new mom with a newfound motivation to address the isolation I sometimes faced as a working expat and new parent.

 

Determined to maintain a sense of self while looking after my little ones, I often sought out networking and professional development opportunities and was surprised by a lack of inclusive spaces with baby change facilities and parent-friendly event times.

 

After moving to Ottawa, I set out to make more space for ‘parentpreneurs’ looking to invest in themselves, and Babies, Business & Breakfast is the result. A pilot program for parent-friendly professional development, my initiative aims to improve parental mental health and accessibility of professional spaces across the city. 

 

I was selected to participate in Impact Academy in 2018, which I completed alongside my newborn son. With a growing group of newsletter subscribers and a social media following for my #BYOBaby into business settings activism, my advocacy has resulted in the first baby change table being installed at Invest Ottawa.

 

This event series is continuing to build support for the idea of a future in which parenthood and professional development don’t have to be mutually exclusive because I believe everyone deserves to design and create a life that works for them and their family.
