Welcome, Parents: Influencing Inclusion at Any Level

Thursday, September 19, 2019 — 3:00PM - 4:00PM

Whether you’re leading your company’s Parent ERG, designing a parental leave policy, or facing the identity crisis that comes from transitioning to parenthood on a team where you’re the only one; Creating inclusion is hard, especially when it feels like you’re asking for yourself. Let’s share ideas about what’s been successful in our own organizations, and what we’d like to advocate for next. What would make the modern workplace into one we’re excited to be a part of? Possible areas of discussion: What does inclusion mean for parents? What is the role of benefits in inclusion? How do you make the business case for the need of parents? How do you influence cultural support as well as policy support? What does good allyship look like? What are strategies for influencing a team to be more inclusive when you are not in a position of authority?
