Cost: Free w. RSVP

New America NYC presents a discussion on how to move the debate on working parenthood debate forward.

From New America NYC:

The United States lags behind the rest of the developed world in implementing constructive family policy that supports the evolving demands and desires of working parents. Often lost in the debates about “having it all” and “leaning in” is a discussion about specific structural and cultural barriers making it difficult to reconcile parenthood with a career. What exactly are these barriers, and how can we better address them, both as individuals and as a society? What can we do to foster a culture that supports meaningful adult life beyond parental and professional obligations?
