National Work & Family Month – Webinars Available

WEBINAR DESCRIPTIONS & REGISTRATION DETAILS

DEPENDENT CARE:

Evolving Fatherhood: Research on The New Dad:  Engaging fathers is a critical issue in a changing 21st century workplace. Fathers today are more involved in child care and housework, and they increasingly value work-life support at work. Understanding fatherhood trends can help us better develop workplace programs to recruit, retain, and engage men who are caregivers. During this webinar, Dr. Brad Harrington from the Boston College Center for Work & Family will discuss findings from his research initiative on The New Dad, which examines the evolving roles and attitudes of working fathers. This research has valuable lessons to offer practitioners seeking to better address the work-life needs of fathers in the Federal workforce.

Impact of Dependent Care Back-Up Programs on Federal Agencies: The Provider’s PerspectiveThis webinar will examine the process of instituting an emergency back-up dependent care program within a Federal agency.  Agency sponsored back-up care supports provide employees with dependents an alternative when their regular daycare, child care, or elder care arrangements fall-through.

Two speakers from proactive dependent care service provider organizations will be featured. Speakers will present critical information regarding considerations that agencies should explore when preparing to establish or develop a back-up care program.  This webinar will also address the important impact of back-up dependent care programs within agencies.  Attendees will learn a description of what emergency back-up care is and what it is not. Attention will be given to the various kinds of support that can be extended to employees and their dependents through effective programs.  Lastly, resources that are available for all Federal agencies will be discussed and shared.
