"What I needed to get out of my own way and back into the workforce" - Amy J.

Sadly, according to Harvard Business Review, if a woman is out of the workforce for just three years she loses 37% of her total compensation power.

Terrifying, right? And the only way to shrink that percentage is to get back into your career as soon as possible. That's where Prowess Project comes in. We're on a mission to achieve gender equality starting with the motherhood penalty. We guide women through their returnship all the way to finding a flexible, empowering work. First step in this journey is to cultivate your mindset to return to your professional career.


Are you a mom thinking about returning to the workforce but don't know where to start? Do you want to return to your previous career but the idea of juggling family and work makes you exhausted? Have you consulted your friends, but need more than advice? If so, we get it. This course is for you.


Prowess Project Returnship Course is designed to help you develop a positive mindset regarding your transition from full-time mom into a professional role. Prowess Project's Chief Development Officer, a "workforce returner", shares research from industry experts, proven best practices and her own personal story (she usually charges $400/HR for consulting). This course focuses on reframing your thoughts and actions into an empowering action plan that will lead you to the next step in your career. The returnship course will help you:

  • Outline for your career goals
  • Create an action plan for tangible next steps
  • Incorporate expert tips to refresh your resume
  • Increase your confidence
  • Visualize scenarios and conquer barriers to returning to work

BONUS - we're offering FREE access to the Prowess Project tribe an online group of like-minded women sharing resources, advice and tips for your home AND work lives ($10/mo added value).

"Leah has unlocked the secrets of reframing returner mindsets and all the while, you feel like you're chatting with your best friend." - Deb D.

Leah Steinkirch holds her Master’s in Counseling from Depaul University and has utilized this foundation in a variety of professional settings: social services, sales, and business operations for non-profit to Fortune 500 companies.

After the birth of her first child, she decided to pause her professional career and focus her time and energy on being at home with her daughter, but her creative energy refused to rest. Fueled by both the frustration of the many barriers to reentry into the workforce for women, as well as the lack of options that allow for motherhood, Leah joined Prowess Project as the Chief Development Officer.

Outside of helping support women wanting to return to work, Leah loves to keep both her mind and body active by running, hiking or diving into a creative project with her children.
