On Tuesday, July 20, Vice President Biden and members of the White House Middle Class Task Force and Council on Women and Girls will hold an event to discuss solutions for families balancing the dual demands of work and family.
Vice President Biden, Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, Senior Advisor to the President Valerie Jarrett, and others will announce recommendations from the Equal Pay Enforcement Task Force and discuss the Administration’s ongoing commitment to improving work-family balance for all Americans.
Since the White House Forum on Workplace Flexibility in March, Corporate Voices has been busy creating and expanding its national workplace flexibility challenge campaign. The campaign challenges the business community to expand support for workplace flexibility and centers around broadening awareness for the positive business and employee benefits workplace flexibility offers. Together with our partner organizations, we look forward to beginning our grassroots outreach to spark conversations in local communities about how workplace flexibility can empower working families.
To date, the following companies have signed our Statement of Support for Expanding Workplace Flexibility:
Accenutre, AOL, Baxter International Inc., Bright Horizons Family Solutions, Childrens’ Creative Learning Centers, Knowledge Universe, KPMG LLP, LifeCare, McGladrey, Workplace Options, and Sodexo, among others.
We applaud their efforts in helping to catalyze nation-wide support for improving the lives of working families through workplace flexibility.
