The National Partnership for Women & Families is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to improving the lives of women and families by achieving equality for all women. Our programmatic work promotes fairness in the workplace, access to quality, affordable health care, reproductive health and rights, and policies that help people meet the dual demands of their jobs and families. We have identified employers as essential stakeholders to advance our issue priorities. Employers largely determine the culture of the workplace and the conditions of employment and have outsized influenced on lawmakers in the development and implementation of public policy. As the nation faces an unprecedented public health crisis, employer engagement is critical. We must push employers to respond with improved policies and practices during the pandemic while simultaneously partnering with employers and affected workers and families to build a more inclusive economy beyond the pandemicā€”where workers and employers can both thrive and benefit from the stability of shared prosperity.
