Raising Children and Having a Career

Together with the 30% Club, we’re convening public and private leaders to discuss why we need a better social contract

Where: Virtual fireside chat

When:  September 13, 2021 | 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. BST


Our current social contract is built on a model where women look after the young and the old for free, which is unsustainable as more women are educated and in paid work.

The economic gains of a truly gender-neutral labor market are potentially huge but how we provide childcare is crucial to unlocking these. Engaging mothers and fathers, a strong role for Government and corporates are all a critical part of the puzzle.

We will host a virtual fireside chat to discuss how businesses can ‘disarm the parent trap’ and transform mid career retention and development.
