Reduce the Gender Pay Gap by Eliminating Unpaid Work

My Family Hand is excited to partner with WORK180, an international organisation committed to removing the barriers women face in the workplace.

Women’s unpaid work is a significant barrier to achieving pay equality – and the planning and coordination involved in ensuring school, extracurricular activities and family life runs smoothly is a large and invisible component of this burden.

By automatically diarising school communications, My Family Hand's calendar-based school app helps working mothers more easily manage the juggle of work, home and family life. My Family Hand works closely with schools to organise communications so parent's have what they need to be organised, when they need it, reducing their mental load and encouraging shared responsibility.

It’s even worse for parents with children attending different schools; the chore of navigating more than one school is a job in itself.

How exhausted parents create extra admin for overwhelmed schools

The to-do list of all parents is endless and always growing. It’s, arguably, even longer when you’re a working parent, juggling the needs of the family with the needs of a boss. Or, if you’re a business owner, you’re also dealing with the stress of running your own company and/or staff.
