Press release: DAC partners with The Mom Project to hire skilled female talent

The US and Canada labor markets are still impacted by unprecedented amounts of women leaving the workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic. Through a new partnership with The Mom Project, DAC has committed to bridging the gap of skilled moms re-entering the workforce.

“We’re incredibly excited to partner with The Mom Project as a commitment to fostering inclusivity at DAC,” said Marcel Labbe, DAC’s VP of People & Culture. “We believe in hiring all types of talent that contribute to our business success, and moms are a fundamental piece of that success.”

And the proof is in the numbers. According to The Mom Success Factor, having moms in the workplace leads to:

  • 40% greater retention by staying with their current employer for the next year
  • 18% more favorable employee well-being experiences
  • 81% more favorable for encouraging collaboration

DAC offers its employees challenging and meaningful work, priding itself on delivering projects with excellence, operating at the leading edge, and staying ahead of the curve in a dynamic industry. While moms can find opportunities to grow and develop their careers, they’re also able to have the flexibility to fit their needs for work and life. DAC’s work environment includes hybrid and remote opportunities depending on the team, as well as autonomy in how the work gets done.

“The Mom Project was founded to help mothers unlock their fullest economic potential,” says Allison Robinson, The Mom Project Founder and CEO. “Mothers can only do so with the partnership of organizations that offer holistic support, benefits, and cultures of true flexibility to meet the demands and responsibilities of working parents. We’re incredibly excited to work together with progressive companies like DAC that not only recognize the value of mothers, but are taking action to enact meaningful change and build a future where moms don’t have to choose between their families and their careers.”

“We take gender balance seriously at DAC and have achieved over 58% of women in our workplace,” says Kiran Prashad, EVP at DAC and mom of two. “We believe that having a diverse workforce is better for business, and this is just one piece of our commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion at DAC.”
