West End Neighborhood Library, 1101 24th St, NW
(Closest Metro station: Foggy Bottom)
RSVP at the Facebook event page here.

Continuing our mini-series on work-life balance issues, YWTF: DC invites you to learn about the laws and public policies that affect individuals' (and particularly women's) ability to balance work and career with their personal responsibilities and needs, and about advocacy and activism around these issues.

Featuring panelists:
Ruth Martin, Campaign Director of Moms Rising
Helen Luryi, Work and Family Policy Associate at the National Partnership for Women & Families
Alice Popejoy, Public Policy Fellow at Association for Women in Science 
Andrea Lindemann, Policy Analyst, Workforce Development at CLASP

We'll discuss topics including:
Why are government and employer policies that allow for work-life balance so important for women and families?
What laws have made a positive impact on individuals' ability to balance work and personal obligations, and what policy areas still need the most improvement?
As young women, what do we need to know about work-life policies as we enter new stages in our lives?
How can we get involved in activism and advocacy around these issues?

Bring your own questions and thoughts to share!

Light refreshments will be served. 
The West End Library is wheelchair accessible.
