National Business Coalition for Child Care
About the National Business Coalition for Child Care
Our nation’s child care crisis is pushing women out of the workforce and limiting our opportunities for advancement at a time when companies are desperate to attract and retain diverse talent, even in a down market.
The National Business Coalition for Child Care brings together companies at the vanguard of solving the child care crisis to elevate child care as an essential business issue, and through their leadership, increase the number of working Americans with access to new or expanded benefits and services.
By participating in the Coalition, companies benefit from fostering a deeper and more diverse pool of talent, while being recognized as leaders of workplace equity.
The Coalition will achieve its goals by:
- Promoting Learning – Many companies may want to offer child care benefits but don’t know where to start. Others need training, peer engagement or knowledge products to make the case for new or expanded benefits or to support implementation. We can fill the gap.
- Amplifying First Movers – Corporate leaders set business trends and influence social norms. By championing child care as a business issue, they will inspire other companies to follow suit.
- Inspiring Action – The Coalition offers opportunities to facilitate new and/or expanded benefits adoption through activities such as pledging events, commitment challenges or innovation workshops.
- Cultivating Leadership – Corporate leaders set business trends and influence social norms. By championing child care as a business issue, they get the benefits of their first mover position and inspire other companies to rise to the occasion. We support opportunities to strengthen Coalition member’s public face on child care.
JOIN THE COALITION
We are actively recruiting organizations to join the National Business Coalition for Child Care. Our Child Care Champions are private sector leaders from across industries driving the charge to normalize child care as a business issue, while Child Care Innovators operate on the supply side of child care, providing critical insights and perspectives on solutions.
By working together as a coalition, companies can create a systemic shift that would not be possible in the absence of collective action. Is your organization ready to join this movement?
