The metro area was No. 12 on a ForbesWoman list ranking America’s Top 50 U.S. cities for working mothers.

ForbesWoman looked at earnings, unemployment rates, crime levels, school systems, health care and cost of living for the second annual report

The top three cities were Minneapolis, Washington and Boston.

Whitney Forstner, a principal of  Momentum Resources, said the assessment is about right.

“Corporate opportunities for Richmond are awesome in the area of flexibility,” said Forstner. “It’s one of the key factors that puts Richmond on the map.”

Momentum Resources is a career development and job placement service that caters to working mothers. Forstner, who is the mother of 4-year-old twin boys, said Richmond has a good number of companies that recognize the value of accommodating that particular subsection of the labor pool.

“Any company that can allow them to work an alternative schedule really builds loyalty and motivates people to get in there and work hard and motivates them to get home and spend time with their children. Companies that incorporate that into their businesses are considered to be the best places to work and sought after by working women,” Forstner said.
