Caring About Care: A Conversation with Anne-Marie Slaughter

March 23, 2016 | 20:30 ET, 00:30 GMT

Companies and governments without child- and elder-care strategies and policies cannot attract and retain talent, nor can they achieve their full productivity and growth potential. The private sector and governments must partner to address the care crisis.

How can we rethink the organization of affordable and accessible care for our families and businesses, knowing that solving this issue can contribute to retaining gender-diverse talent as well as increasing competitiveness and productivity?

Join us with your spouses/partners to begin a fresh conversation about why we should all care about care—employees, employers and governments alike.
