Access to child care and other forms of care is critical to people’s ability to participate in the workforce, but too often, it is not available or affordable to match the need. Join the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco on November 18 for a Fed Listens event focused on the role of care in supporting labor force participation and the economic recovery from COVID-19.  Register today to hear from experts in the field. 

The program will feature SF Fed President Mary Daly, a research presentation on the labor market participation of parents during the pandemic, and a panel discussion with leaders from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. Together, we will explore the challenges and opportunities for strengthening the provision of care work in support of an inclusive economic recovery. View the agenda.
