About

We're on a mission to provide the resources and community support to help moms thrive in their tech careers without burning out

Our Manifesto

Upend the Status Quo

``The Motherhood Penalty`` in hiring, salaries, and perceived competence is real. We want to boldly upend this status quo.

Lead with Authenticity

We work on bringing our whole selves to the tech industry because our unique perspective is critically needed to make the world a better place.

Normalize Working Motherhood

Society expects women to work like they don’t have children, and raise children as if they don’t work. We don’t hide motherhood from work — or apologize for it.

Inspire Your Kids

Instill a growth mindset in your kids to create a love of learning and resilience. Let them see you pursue your dreams, fail, and rise again.

Be Kind to Yourself and Others

From childhood women are taught perfection, which makes mom guilt difficult to manage. The reality is that kids of working moms grow into happy adults.

Set Strong Boundaries

Working moms are most at risk for burnout. We must advocate for the flexibility we need to achieve work life integration.

About the Founder

Chas Larios is a mom to 2 curious pre-schoolers, Director of Marketing Strategy & Data Analytics at a Fortune tech company, and Founder of Tech Mom Collective, a community on a mission to provide the resources needed for tech moms to thrive in their careers while managing burnout.

By day, she's been on a steady rise in her career working at Fortune tech companies for the last decade across data analytics, product management, marketing, and strategy roles. By night, she's working on big dreams to use her experience to help other moms.

Her passion for helping other working moms came after a big promotion to lead a division within marketing for a cybersecurity tech leader, while also trying to navigate a new baby and a toddler at home. She was ranked in the top 5% of people leaders at a company of over 150,000 people, but she failed to scale herself at home and in the office in a sustainable way. She burned out and nearly quit working altogether.

Since hitting that wall, she recovered with lots of coaching, research, and therapy to learn how to better scale herself as a leader and as a mom and set strong boundaries. She now enjoys leading successful teams, finds joy in the time spent with her kids, and has even made guilt-free time for herself to birth Tech Mom Collective.

With a B.A. from the University of Texas at Austin and an M.P.A. from Texas State University, Chas resides in Austin, Texas with her husband, daughter, and son.

We provide you with resources to help navigate motherhood and a career in tech.
