JUNE 24, 2021 | 1:00 – 2:00 PM

 

There are 53 million unpaid family caregivers in the United States plus an additional 5.7 million people working in the care sector. The majority of these people are women who are not only carrying the burden of caregiving, but also experiencing negative economic impacts due to low wages, reduced ability to work, lower retirement savings and more.

Join Texas Women’s Foundation as we discuss the economic impacts of care, particularly care for the elderly and people with disabilities, and how understanding care as a shared responsibility will set the stage for a stronger economy for all.

Hear from experts, Julie Kashen Senior Fellow Director, Women’s Economic Justice of The Century Foundation and Melissa Orth, President & CEO of the Legacy Senior Communities. They have  conducted research and work in this field, and will provide insight and recommendations.
