Parenthood in the Digital Age

Join us for an open discussion on what parenthood looks like in the digital age and how technology can be used to transform the childcare industry. We are joined by Bri Harmon, a TV HOST, the founder of the 'What Women Need' expo and conference series, and a podcast host for the soon-to-launch, 'The Millennial Mommies Club'. She will be joined by Leslie Borrell, the founder of Carefully App, a network of parents that are redefining the traditional ‘care circle’ model for the digital age by searching and finding childcare solutions via the app.

Founder/CEO, Carefully

After 20 years as a technology and product leader for industry leading companies including Etsy, Travelocity, and ThoughtWorks, Leslie followed her passion and founded Carefully, a cooperative platform for parents to build trusted networks for sharing care and hosting playdates. Leslie has demonstrated a unique talent for building talented, diverse, and inclusive teams that overcome obstacles and challenges to deliver above expectations and look for simple solutions to complex problems. She combines her deep understanding of agile values, engineering ethos, and practices that promote early delivery with her core values of empowerment and accountability to grow inspired teams.

Carefully is on a mission to change how we think about childcare to make it affordable, accessible, and inclusive. Carefully’s mission has become even more critical, as the need for managing childcare costs and options is finally starting to get some of the focus it deserves from employers and politicians alike. Finding balance and connecting with other parents in meaningful ways is what we all need now, more than ever.
