NEWFA Meeting

From the White House, to the State House, to your organization: evolving Work-Family policy and what it means for employers

Wednesday, September 17, 2014; 9:00-11:30am

Yawkey Center, Boston College Chestnut Hill Campus

In June 2014, The White House Summit on Working Families brought unprecedented attention to the issues that the Boston College Center for Work & Family has been studying for nearly 25 years. The acknowledgement and appreciation of the challenges faced by workers today was evident.
Less clear are the next steps...for government (local, state, and federal) and for organizations. This meeting seeks to advance the momentum created by the Summit by exploring evolving public policy and engaging organizations in a discussion of the cultures and policies that will allow both businesses and individuals to thrive.
Attendees will hear from government and corporate representatives and will participate in an interactive dialogue on the future of work-life and work-family policy. Featured speakers include the U.S. DOL's Jackie Cooke, Gayle Goldin, the State Senator from Rhode Island who successfully sponsored the Paid Leave law, Christina Knowles of the Boston Women's Workforce Council, and Maryella Gockel of NEWFA Member EY (Ernst & Young) who recently testified before Congress on corporate work-family policies.














This meeting is free for NEWFA Members. You are encouraged to bring a colleague as a guest.

Non-Members are invited to attend their first meeting as a guest.  Beyond the first meeting, non-members will be charged $100 for registration.
