    I thought some of you would find this webinar interesting: a recent US Chamber of Commerce Foundation webinar discussed how changes to government policy & support from the business community with employer sponsored child care benefits can help improve working parents access and ability to afford child care.

    Here's the article overview which includes the video of the webinar: https://www.uschamber.com/on-demand/employees/childcare-for-working-parents-current-barriers-and-how-to-break-them

    The panel featured Laura Kaloi (Stride Policy Solutions), Abby McCloskey (McCloskey Policy), Alessandra Lezama (TOOTRiS Child Care On-Demand), Lilia Vergara (Dr. Bronner's All-One) & was moderated by Cheryl A. Oldham, Vice President for Education Policy at U.S. Chamber of Commerce. [note: I work for one of the organizations mentioned here]
