In today’s environment, where dual-earner households have become an economic necessity and as a caregiving crisis continues, the impact of the care load is felt by both employees and employers. No longer is this an individual problem to be solved but instead requires collective action at home, at work, and at the policy level.

Though the care-load can affect everyone, women are disproportionately saddled with what sociologist Arlie Hochschild termed “the second shift” –the unpaid household and childcare/eldercare duties that follow a paid workday. This can directly contribute to inequities within the workplace.

This webinar will look at the current and historical facts surrounding caregiving & work, the current caregiving crisis, the impact on individuals, organizations and economies and its contribution to work-family conflict and workplace inequity, and the overall tactics and strategies for positive change and gender equality.
