Women entrepreneurs, workers, and researchers are critical to U.S. competitiveness. Join BPC for a conversation with Commerce Department Deputy Secretary Don Graves on the state and future of women in the workforce. We will explore how the Department is implementing recently enacted laws like the CHIPS and Science Act and what additional policies or investments could best help women enter and remain in the workforce.
Hear from the Deputy Secretary how he and the Administration are working to keep and support women in the workforce – particularly in STEM – through expanding paid family leave, job protections like FMLA, and accommodating caregiving.
