Panelists talked about improving equality in the workplace, focusing on an Independent Women’s Forum report that offers solutions for pay equity, discrimination, and paid leave. One recommendation was to create personal care accounts that would allow people to save money for use during time off from work. Employers could also participate by matching employee contributions dollar for dollar. Another proposal would provide tax credits to small businesses that allowed employees to take time off.

“Working for Women: A Modern Agenda for Improving Women’s Lives” was part of the Independent Women’s Forum annual Women Lead Summit on economic policy issues that affect women in the workplace held following the April 12, 2016, release of the organization’s report, Working for Women: A Modern Agenda for Improving Women’s Lives. The day-long summit was held at the American Institute of Architects. close
