When we formed Corporate Voices for Working Families in 2001, our goal was to engage the business community in social issues involving working families. And we have demonstrated -- with the help of our corporate, strategic outreach and funding partners -- what can be accomplished when you combine advocacy with business research, corporate best practices, and collaboration among key individuals and organizations in both the public and private sectors.
Businesses, working families and communities succeed when individuals at all ages and all socioeconomic levels prosper -- and the competitiveness of American business is tied to the quality and skills of a workforce that is shaped and nurtured in a lifelong talent development pipeline.
Reflecting these intersecting interests of businesses, working families and communities, we focus our work in four key areas:
- Workforce Readiness
- Workplace Flexibility
- Family Economic Stability
- Work and Family
- Legislative Initiatives
