Due to concerns regarding community health regarding the spread of COVID-19, the Greater Phoenix Chamber team has elected to shift to a telework office and postpone or cancel upcoming events. The Chamber team will still be available to members via phone and email. The Chamber will continue to communicate with you as more information and resources become available. The Chamber’s COVID-19 resource page will remain current with news impacting businesses.
Additionally, our team will be sharing a weekly community health update to ensure that you and your business are aware of what is happening in our community.
Reimagining Today’s Workforce Series presents The Childcare Equation: COVID-19, Parents, & Employer Solutions
Join the Greater Phoenix Chamber Foundation for the new Reimagining Today’s Workforce Webinar Series. In an everchanging workforce landscape, this series will connect employers and community leaders with tools and best practices to support their talent development strategies, provide current workforce trends, highlight partnerships with education providers, and more.
COVID-19 continues to spread and impact the workforce, complicating things not only for parents but also for employers. Parents are trying to balance childcare and work, while employers are trying to figure out how and when their working parents can return to work. There are no easy solutions for parents or the companies that employ them, but some steps are being taken to address this issue.
On September 10, join us for a discussion about how employers are innovating to support working parents.
Hear from Julia Barfield with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Center for Education and Workforce, as she shares a comprehensive data overview around workforce and childcare, followed by a discussion around how employers are innovating to help employees find childcare solutions.
