Jacque Eidson lives in Blue Springs and works with GMLF Board Chairman Carolyn Chrisman as a Field Faculty member for the University of Missouri’s Business Development Program, working specifically with the SBDC (Small Business Development Center) and PTAC (Procurement Technical Assistance Center) programs housed in the UMKC Innovation Center. She is also completing her dissertation research to obtain her Ph.D. in Organizational Psychology through Grand Canyon University. An approved applicant for the Class of 2021, she has had to defer her participation in the Challenge until COVID restrictions are lifted. We are hopeful she can join the Class of 2022.

All working mothers can assist her in her research. Qualified participants must have voluntarily left the workforce (in any sector) for a minimum of one year due to motherhood AND are currently working in the financial services sector in the U.S. Midwest.

Her study is titled “The Experiences of Working Mothers in the Financial Services Industry Being Mentored After an Extended Leave” to better understand how working mothers describe their experiences being mentored as they reenter the financial services industry after an extended leave from the workforce.
