Designing Work-Family Policies for Families, Employers and Gender Equity

Lessons From the US and Around the Globe

During the last 30 years, family life in the US- and other industrialized nations- has changed dramatically. A majority of mothers are in the workforce. What do experiences from the US and around the globe tell us about the optimal design of policies to support working families?

Join the New America Foundation and the Institute for Women's Policy Research as four experts examine the evidence from the US and across the world on work-family policies that support families, help employers succeed, and increase gender equity.

Box lunches will be provided.
 

This event is co-sponsored by the Institute for Women's Policy Research.  We would like to thank the Kellogg Foundation for their generous support of this event.
