We know this platform is the result of considerable research and strategic thinking, and that it will help prompt the kind of conversation this nation needs to ensure that we put policies in place that help workers meet the dual demands of job and family.
It's time we recognize family-friendly policies as essential to our economic recovery and viability. We look forward to reviewing this platform, and helping share it with lawmakers, advocates, business leaders and others."
