Childcare Barriers to Returning to Work

Monday, April 20, 2020 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

WHAT IS PATH FORWARD

As public health authorities across the United States work to control the spread of COVID-19, the country is beginning an important conversation about responsible ways to restart the economy that requires planning and novel support.   

From barriers to reopening, to big questions about immunity and liability, to ways employers can incorporate innovative approaches to safety into the workplace, the U.S. Chamber Foundation’s program series Path Forward fosters dialogue on helping America prepare to restart the economy and get millions of people back to work.  

Featuring deep-dive conversations with a cross-sector of experts led by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Suzanne Clark, Path Forward airs twice-weekly on Mondays and Thursdays at 3:00 p.m. EST to explore the complex issues that must be considered as part of a responsible reopening strategy.

WHAT TOPICS WERE DISCUSSED ON APRIL 20?

We discussed the importance of childcare, the barriers employers must overcome, and what we can learn from other parts of the world.

WHO WERE THE SPEAKERS?

Suzanne Clark, President, U.S. Chamber of Commerce

Lesely Crawford, Owner and Director, ABK Learning & Development Center

Tom Wyatt, CEO, KinderCare
