Rosenthal Pavilion, 10th Floor
New York, NY
The fabric of the American workforce has changed over the last several decades with the dramatically increased participation of women - but federal policies have yet to adjust to meet the needs of the modern workforce and middle class families. Senator Gillibrand is championing an agenda of Paid Family and Medical Leave, Quality Affordable Child Care, Universal Pre-K, Increased Minimum Wage and Equal Pay to modernize the American workplace for women workers and the entire middle class with policies that treats them equally, allows them to reach their full economic potential and reflects our values. This Summit will be an important discussion about workplace policies that will place women and middle-class families at the forefront of the economic agenda.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in one of two "solution sessions" designed for panelists to share their experiences and spark discussion about how current workplace policies and challenges have affected their professional and personal success, and what steps need to be taken to allow for full economic empowerment.
