We are reimagining working parenthood
Because we understand it takes a Villyge
We envision a world where…
Our Origin Story
Our Founder and CEO, Debi Yadegari, is a working mother of five and former investment banking lawyer. She walked away from Wall Street for two reasons: her employer did not support working parents, and her workplace was not equipped to support her breastfeeding goals. Recognizing her experience was not uncommon—companies lose 43% of new moms and 33% of new dads every year—she decided it was time for change. Employers and employees were both losing out and she knew that was a problem she wanted to solve. Her experience was the catalyst for reimagining the future of working parent support today.
Our commitment to helping working families thrive starts with our own. We are a fully remote team of dedicated and agile employees, committed to a family-first philosophy and a culture of inclusivity and respect. We provide our employees with the flexibility needed to thrive at work and at home, which creates a culture of mutual respect and commitment.
Villyge is an equal opportunity employer, who does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status or disability status; and each of our team members is passionate about our mission to increase gender and racial diversity by supporting working parents. Villyge is helping to shape the culture of work.
We are the leader in working parent support.
Because we understand that a change in corporate culture can be the most important step to supporting working parents, we do much more than just provide 1:1 employee support. We offer a holistic 360-degree approach to supporting working parents that includes developmental programs and comprehensive policy buildouts for the employer. We are the only provider of workplace support to have an in-house team of lawyers who manage leadership training and specialize in lactation accommodation law to reduce litigation risk. Our expertise is why our clients maintain the industry’s highest retention rate of 96% post-baby and how our average client saves over $4.5 million annually.
And we're doing our part to change the corporate landscape of working parenthood by amplifying parents' needs and elevating the employers who support them.
