About this event

“43.5 million adults provided unpaid care to an adult or a child with special needs in the previous year”, according to the National Alliance for Caregiving. WebMD states, “half of the workforce expects to be providing care for an elder in the next 5 years”. If you care for someone yourself, then you know how much dedication and time it takes. Everyday is filled with constant pivoting, adaptability, and resourcefulness.

These initial statistics speak for themselves: + 70% of working caregivers suffer work-related difficulties due to their dual roles. (National Alliance for Caregiving) + Mothers are spending more time in the labor force than in the past, but also more time on child care. (Pew Research) + Many working mothers believe becoming a parent taught them how to maximize their time and be more calm under pressure. (Business Insider)
