Nonprofit Executive Shares How "Returnships" Are an On-Ramp for Caregivers to Get Back to Full-Time Work, with Tami Forman (Replay)
Show Notes

It's back to school for kids and parents! It's a time of renewal, change, and getting back into a groove. 

If you're a mom whose child has gone back to school and you're wondering about your next steps and if it's time to find full-time work,  it's essential to know about “returnships”. Returnships are an on-ramp for caregivers to get back into the workforce and find a full-time job.

In this replay, Tami Forman, the former Executive Director of Path Forward shares her mission to bring talent back into the workforce and to identify future talent through returnships.  

Returnships are like the cousin of internships. For internships, you're a young adult who is in or who has just graduated from college. For returnships, you're an adult who already worked for at least 5 years, took time off to care for a child or an adult, and you're now wanting to return to the workforce. 

As of the time of original recording,  Path Forward had worked with more than 80 employers, including Amazon, Netflix, Walmart, Apple, Verizon, and more. 

We discuss topics such as: 

  • What's a returnship?
  • Who's a good fit for a returnship?
  •  How does the process work?
  • How do you get one?

Tami also discuss her career path and what it's like to be a visionary and a nonprofit executive who wears many hats.
