Balancing the Burden of Care: Impact of Policies on Productivity

There will be a webcast of this event There will be a podcast of this event

The burden of care--the time, energy, and cost of caring for other people--is growing, and it often disproportionately affects the financial, physical, and mental well-being of women. In addition, this burden has negative consequences on the health and productivity of workers, impacting business productivity, profits, and economic growth. Policies that distribute the burden of care equally have the potential to greatly shape women's health, empower them economically, and improve business performance.

Join the Wilson Center and EMD Serono on March 22 for a panel discussion with private sector and policy leaders on identifying policies that can alleviate the health impacts on caregivers, and create equitable work environments where talented women and men can rise and thrive, without sacrificing their health.

Media guests, including TV crews, are welcome and should RSVP directly to Ellysse.Dick@wilsoncenter.org. Media bringing heavy electronics MUST indicate this in their response so they may be cleared through our building security and allowed entrance.
