Evans founded Working Mother Media in August 2001 after acquiring Working Mother magazine and the National Association for Female Executives (NAFE), becoming the first mom to own Working Mother. She has launched several key initiatives including Best Companies for Multicultural Women, Best Green Companies and Best Companies for Hourly Workers.
