Debriefing on the White House Summit on Working Families

summitOn June 23, the White House Summit on Working Families brought together representatives from many different sectors – from small to large businesses, women’s advocacy groups, unions and more – to discuss how to “set an agenda for a 21st century workplace that works for all Americans.”  Ellen Galinsky was a panelist, and many of our Corporate  Leadership Circle (CLC) members and When Work Works winners attended.
