Challenges & Opportunities for Caregivers and Why Employers Should Care

Wednesday, February 2nd 2022

Over and over again, we hear the stories and we see the data around the struggles that working mothers face when managing the confluence of paid work and unpaid work (caregiving and household work). The pandemic put a spotlight on these challenges, as millions of women (predominantly mothers) dropped out of the workforce. Yet here we are, at the dawn of a new year, and many organizations have still not yet put concrete measures in place to better support caregivers in the workplace.

What is it going to take, why are organizations so slow to invest in their employees who are also caregivers? This webinar will take a deep look at the facts behind the motherhood bias, the caregiver crisis, and the motherhood penalty, and why employers can no longer look away. A combination of presentation and discussion, we will look closely at the data to provide participants with the foundational knowledge and strategies to advocate for change.
