Background: Working Mother targets moms who are dedicated to their families and committed to their careers. It specifically focuses on workplace flexibility, women's advancement, diversity and inclusion, and making working moms' lives better with time-saving parenting advice and tips.

Like the moms it serves, Working Mother has traveled a long road to independence. Founded in 1978 as McCall's Working Mother, the magazine went through a series of corporate owners before former publisher Carol Evans bought it in 2002. She founded Working Mother Media, comprised of Working Mother and, the National Association for Female Executives, Diversity Best Practices, the Working Mother Research Institute, and a conferences and events division. Bonnier Corp. acquired the group in fall 2008, and Evans stepped down as president in 2015. The new head of Working Mother Media is vp/general manager Subha V. Barry.
