The burden of care—the time, energy, and costs of caring for other people—is growing, and women shoulder the heaviest load. This burden can have negative consequences for businesses, too, as it affects the health and productivity of workers, as well as economic growth. At a recent Wilson Center Ground Truth Briefing, four leading experts discussed the ways in which progressive policies could help balance the burden of care to increase economic productivity and benefit both employers and employees. 

A series of panel discussions revealed innovative strategies to use the evidence base for women's leadership as a starting point to drive change at all levels of decision-making and across sectors.

On December 5th, The Wilson Center’s Women in Public Service Project hosted a screening of the new documentary, Zaza Rising, followed by a discussion on social enterprise development and sustainability with the Executive Producer of the film, Elizabeth Dettke.
