Our story

WorkLife Central was founded by Louisa Symington-Mills in late 2012 with the aim of providing a relevant and convenient professional network for working mothers in London.

Originally known as Citymothers, in April 2014 Cityfathers was launched to provide a similar offering for working fathers. In November 2015, these networks were combined and rebranded as 'Cityparents' to reflect our fully inclusive ethos, the diversity of our member base and our wide-ranging offering.

In May 2022, the name Cityparents changed to WorkLife Central, reflecting the continued evolution of the programme to provide expertise, information and inspiration to all professionals, and its transition from an in-person offering to a wholly-online resource.

Today, WorkLife Central is an award-winning organisation supporting working parents and professionals in corporate roles. We deliver a carefully curated programme of online Live events, On Demand videos, shorts and recordings, and a Library of expert articles, podcasts and our members blog to both businesses and individuals. Topics include career progression, work/life balance, home/family life and parenting, wellbeing at work, inclusion, and creating flexible and inclusive workplaces.  All of our content is delivered by third party experts, who are carefully selected by us. We can also tailor events specifically to meet your organisation's need, through our In-House service. 

All of our content covers relevant careers, families, inclusion, wellbeing and workplace-related topics, aimed at helping individuals get ahead at work and at home. Find out more about What we Offer here.
