Over the past decade, advanced industrialized countries have been crafting policy solutions to meet the needs of a 21st century workforce. At the briefing, international work and family policy experts will highlight what the US can learn from these examples. Join us for the third meeting of the Work & Family Program of New America's Congressional briefing series.
