Let’s Talk… Motherhood with FQ

Join FQ for an intimate evening of insightful conversation with a powerful panel of women hosted by editor-in-chief Sarah Murray to discuss the strength, wisdom and love that fall under the uniting theme of motherhood in all of its forms.

Leaning on three prominent women across entrepreneurial, beauty, and wellbeing sectors, each guest speaker will share their diverse experiences and insights, illuminating the many ways in which motherhood enriches our lives and strengthens our communities while pursuing a fulfilling career and maintaining a harmonious balance between personal and professional aspirations. They may even uncover a few practices you can adopt to relieve the mother load of motherhood.
