Flexible Policies for Balancing Family, Caregiving, and Work in a Pandemic

This event has passed.

Working families have always been challenged by the proverbial work-life balance, but the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted this critical struggle. Families need interventions to better balance the needs of vulnerable and aging loved ones, manage virtual, hybrid or homeschooling, and keep jobs.

Please join the Bipartisan Policy Center on December 16 as we host a virtual fireside chat and moderated panel discussion with experts on working families, paid family leave, and caregiving. We will explore creative, bipartisan solutions that could meet the needs of working families – especially working women – in these unprecedented times. We hope to elevate pragmatic policies ranging from paid family leave and dependent savings accounts, to affordable, quality child care and family caregiving.

Read our latest blog on the need for continued bipartisan momentum on paid leave.
