2021 Briefing on Paid Leave in the US Tech Industry — Free Webinar July 7, 2021
The US approach to leave for parents involves unpaid parental leave, child-related tax breaks, and limited public childcare; whereas other developed countries have taken another path opting to use use paid parental leave and comprehensive investments in infants and children to boost outcomes. There are signs, however, that the US legislation is taking cues from its neighbors in regards to paid parental leave.
In an extremely thoughtful and timely webinar for tech companies and employees, Vicki Shabo, one of America’s leading experts on gender equity and work, will provide a briefing on how the US is turning to paid leave as a way to make things better for workers and their families.
The 2021 Briefing on Paid Leave in the US Tech Industry is free and scheduled for Wednesday, July 7, 2021, at 12:00pm to 1pm ET / 16:00 to 17:00 UTC.
Vicki Shabo is Senior Fellow, Paid Leave Policy and Strategy at New America’s Better Life Lab. This webinar is presented by the i2Coalition’s Diversity and Inclusion Initiative.
