During the last 30 years, family life in the US - and other industrialized nations-- has changed dramatically. A majority of mothers are in the workforce, and most children live in households with a working mother. What do experiences from the US and around the globe tell us about the optimal design of policies to support working families? Join the New America Foundation and the Institute for Policy Research as four experts examine the evidence from the US and across the world on work-family policies that support families, help employers succeed, and increase gender equality. A webcast of the panel discussion will be available on the day of the event on the New America Foundation website here.
