October 5, 2011 — Washington, D.C — WorldatWork will hold a Congressional briefing on Tuesday, October 18, to share findings from four significant surveys:

Men and Work-Life Integration
(WorldatWork’s Alliance for Work-Life Progress and WFD Consulting)

Telework 2011: A WorldatWork Special Report
(WorldatWork)

The New Dad: Caring, Committed and Conflicted
(Boston College Center for Work & Family)

The New Male Mystique
(Families and Work Institute and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation)

Panel members:
Ellen Galinsky, President and Co-Founder, Families and Work Institute
Dr. Brad Harrington, Executive Director, Boston College Center for Work & Family
Kathie Lingle, Executive Director, WorldatWork’s Alliance for Work-Life Progress

Moderated by: Katie Vlietstra, Public Policy Analyst, WorldatWork

“With the increased focus by the Administration to elevate the dialogue related to work-life balance for military families, STEM professionals, and mothers, this briefing will highlight another subset of individuals: men,” said Cara Welch, Esq., director of public policy for WorldatWork. “We believe the briefing will add yet another layer to the ongoing conversations within Congress as they consider legislation that addresses work-life benefits and workplace flexibility. Attendees at the briefing will have a wonderful opportunity to hear from leading experts in the area of work-life who will provide research based commentary on successful programs and opportunities for organizations to introduce work-life programs into their culture.”

The briefing will coincide with National Work and Family Month, celebrated yearly since 2003 when October was first designated as National Work & Family Month by a Resolution of the United States Senate.
