Molly Dickens is co-founder and Executive Director of &Mother, a nonprofit organization dedicated to breaking the barriers that limit a woman’s choice to pursue and thrive in both career and motherhood.
Molly received her B.A. from Cornell University and her Ph.D. in Biology from Tufts University. She conducted postdoctoral research focused on stress and female reproductive physiology at the University of Liege in Belgium and at the University of California at Berkeley. After jumping off the academic track, Molly joined a maternal health startup as a founding team member.
Merging her expertise as a stress physiologist, her passion for improving maternal health, and her current work focusing on the structures and systems that fail working mothers, Molly is currently interested in the connections between women’s mental and physical health and caregiver support in the working world.
