Webinar: An Introduction to Paid Family Leave

Featuring Abby McCloskey


One in five mothers return to work mere days or weeks after giving birth. This return is often not out of a desire to return to work so quickly, but out of necessity. One reason: A lack of paid family leave.

This webinar provides an introduction to paid family leave. Abby McCloskey, economist and political commentator, addresses three key questions:

  1. What is paid family leave? Who now has access to it? What do we know about the programs now in place?

  2. Where does paid family leave sit politically?

  3. What are common concerns and objections related to paid family leave?
