The Women's Work Lab: Doing well by doing good

Wednesday 8 May 2024

About the Women's Work Lab

A conversation with Camilla Rigby and Rachel Mostyn, Co-Founders and CEOs of Bristol-based business the Women's Work Lab, as they explain how and why they are doing well by doing good.

Since launching, Women’s Work Lab has supported over 300 women – mostly single parents, many with experience of domestic abuse, children with SEN and their own health conditions – on their journey into work. Camilla and Rachel's shared vision is to become the UK’s biggest employability support for unemployed Mums.

About Camilla

Mum to two boys, Camilla worked in corporate communications for over 15 years before co-founding the Women's Work Lab with Rachel in 2019. She has lived experience of being in a single parent household, supporting a child with additional needs and also being neurodivergent herself. Camilla believes passionately in creating a more equitable working world where everyone is given opportunities to thrive.

About Rachel

Rachel is mum to three headstrong teens and worked as a national newspaper journalist and comms strategist pre Women's Work Lab. She is a passionate advocate of inclusive employment practices and believes family friendly flexible working should be an absolute given for all rather than a privilege to be earned.
