Essential Labor: What Caregivers Really Need from Workplaces

Domestic care and labor make all other work possible, yet workplaces have yet to find a solution to fully support caregivers. If “mothering” is among the only essential work humans do, why don’t we have a social safety net to support them? This session, designed for everyone – including and especially people who aren’t parents – will expand our understanding of what ‘mothering’ can and should look like. Acclaimed author Angela Garbes will explore assumptions about care, work and deservedness and offer strategies to imagine and achieve a more equitable and caring path forward.
