🔊 Announcing Our Caregiving and Work Summit - Powered by Vivvi and Indeed
let's design a sustainable plan for care and career this new year
As employers and policymakers debate what a post-pandemic landscape will look like, one thing is clear: Women and caregivers continue to face unprecedented challenges.
The women’s employment crisis is still far from over. Men have recouped all of their job losses since the pandemic began, but there are still 1 million fewer women in the labor force now than in February 2020, according to the National Women’s Law Center.
The caregiving crisis is getting worse, as parents struggle to find affordable care. Nearly 16,000 child care providers permanently closed during the pandemic, according to Child Care Aware of America, and parents across the U.S. are paying an astounding 41% more now for center-based child care.
Women are exhausted, physically and mentally. Nearly half of women said they felt consistently burned out at work in 2021, according to McKinsey and LeanIn.org.
The summit will address the continued impact of the caregiving crisis on women and families, while examining both short-term and long-term solutions to help ease the burden on stressed-out working parents.
Women and caregivers will walk away with practical, actionable advice on:
how to plan for back-up care when life goes awry
how to balance childcare with working from home
how to set boundaries at work and home
how to prevent and fight burnout
Employers will walk away with tools, resources, and information on:
what working parents expect from employers in 2022
how to create a return-to-work policy that’s truly equitable
how to support working parents’ childcare needs now, and beyond the pandemic
how to motivate mentally exhausted workers
Working parents are struggling, but companies and leaders have the power to help. Let’s make it happen.
