Announcing Our Partnership with Vivvi As Urgent Need For Childcare Mounts
women need childcare to work, join us!
The number one reason women leave the workforce is the lack of adequate childcare. “Rising COVID-19 cases, changes in school plans, shrinking child care options—it’s never been more difficult to be a parent, and especially a mom, in America. Instead of providing the solutions that families need, some lawmakers are focused on scare tactics invoking “toddler takeovers” and stalling any progress.” says Julie Kashen, Women’s Economic Justice and Senior Fellow.
Vivvi is partnering with employers to build sustainable solutions for families in the workforce, and we are so excited to partner with Vivvi on this mission of care for women and families through our existing channels, including newsletter, podcast, toolkits and resources. Attendees of the upcoming Caregiving and Work Summit will receive tangible tools on how to assess their childcare needs, and receive step-by-step solutions to meeting those needs. Beyond that, this partnership with Vivvi allows us to continue supporting mothers in the workforce in a meaningful way.
I am so thrilled and so excited to introduce our very first Keynote, Charles Bonello, Co-Founder & CEO of Vivvi. Charles and I will be discussing steps employers must take in building a family-inclusive future of work in the post-pandemic era as parents continue to feel the care crunch personally and professionally.
Later in the day, we will hear from Lauren Hobbs, Chief Marketing Officer at Vivvi, Audrey Goodson Kingo, Editor-In-Chief at Mother Honestly, Kacy Hassack, VP, Global Human Resources at Indeed, and Stephanie LeBlanc-Godfrey, Global Head of Inclusion at Google on What Working Parents and Caregivers Need From Employers And How To Get There. This is a must attend. More than 2 million working mothers were pushed out of the workforce during the first year of the pandemic alone, and female participation in the workforce is at the lowest level since the 1980s. This urgent need for high-quality and reliable child care for working families is increasingly driving demand for employer-sponsored care benefits, which are more important to working families than ever before. In Vivvi’s 2021 State of Working Parents Survey, 82% of respondents said spending more time at home with their children over the past year has made employer-provided child care benefits even more important to them. Join this important conversation on care.
