The goal is to create an inclusive environment—both online and in-person—where working moms in the Boston area are supported with community resources for their careers and personal lives.

This partnership will allow us to meet moms where they are and give them what they need arguably now more than ever—spaces where they can feel championed and supported.”
HeyMama and WS Development have formally launched the Boston chapter of HeyMama together at WS’s Boston properties including Seaport Boston, Derby Street Shops, The Street Chestnut Hill, MarketStreet Lynnfield, and Legacy Place.

Together with HeyMama, WS properties will host large-scale signature events as well as intimate get-togethers, and virtual opportunities to connect. These events will offer Massachusetts women access to thought-leader panels, wellness activations, family events, and more. Leave placeholder to mention first event at Marketstreet.
