our story 
 

I have a vision:

I am sure that as part of this change, at some point employers will also ask a 35-year-old man with a wedding ring on his finger in a job interview whether he will soon be taking parental leave.

Hi, I am Ricarda, founder of MyCollective. I set up the business during my own parental leave with our third child. It seemed to be common practice to take a year's parental leave. I simply copied my colleagues and took parental leave.


​One morning, when walking with my baby and a coffee to go through the streets of Munich, I was amazed how much human capital is walking through this city at 10am! Most parents (including me) love the time with their children, but are intellectually completely underchallenged.


​Adding the business perspective to that - companies are loosing their talents during the family creation time and face increasing pressure to have more diverse tams, also in the management levels.
This is where the idea of MyCollective was born.

our mission

"We are changing the narrative of parental leave - because we believe in the power of parenting."
