A Paid Leave Conversation with Top Philanthropic, Business, and Advocacy Leaders – Aug 25

Posted by Bipartisan Policy Center on August 24, 2021

Paid leave policy is drawing increased attention from the business community and policymakers as labor market and workforce challenges persist even as the economy recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. The proverbial ‘work-life balance’ has become elusive for too many in today’s economy, which is imposing incompatible demands on families and frustrating businesses trying to grow their workforces in a very competitive labor market. Recent Bipartisan Policy Center research suggests that millions of Americans are not working due to caregiving responsibilities, and that millions would be more likely to work or to work more if they had access to a paid family leave benefit.

This event brings together a panel of prominent leaders from business, advocacy, and philanthropy to discuss the need for paid family and medical leave, key elements of a potential federal program, and importantly, how to design a policy that works for employers and employees alike.

This event will take place on Wednesday, August 25 at 2:30 p.m. EST.
