Join Researchers from Across the Country and Around the World in Educating Congress About Work and Family Issues!
You are invited to a special Work Family Congressional Education and Policy Day to be held June 22, the day before the Work and Family Researchers Network (WFRN) 2016 Conference opens in Washington, D.C. This special day will be co-hosted by the National Partnership for Women & Families and the Washington Center for Equitable Growth.
Work and family researchers from across the country and around the globe will have the opportunity to meet with members of Congress to educate them about issues such as paid family and medical leave, paid sick days, and fair scheduling. Join WFRN for an interactive training session, including pointers on how to make your research most relevant to legislators and their staff, and then meet individually or in small groups with members of Congress to share your perspective and research. The National Partnership and Equitable Growth will provide training, schedule your meetings, and pair you up with policy practitioners. There is no charge to participate. All you have to do is sign up here and bring your expertise!
