Quiet Progress: Winning Paid Family Leave for State Government Employees
Date & Time: Nov 3, 2023 01:00 AM in Taipei
Description: Over the past few years, there has been a rapid increase in the enactment of paid parental and family leave policies for state government employees, with two-thirds of states now providing this important protection. While these policies have received little public attention, they benefit millions of families across the country and help advance racial and gender equity, since women and Black workers are disproportionately represented in the public sector workforce.

Please join us for a virtual discussion on the impacts of public sector paid leave policies, key trends across states, and effective advocacy strategies to advance public sector paid family leave in your community.
