Live Outside NC? Use Our Playbook to Inspire and Engage Business Leaders and Employers in Your Community


You know wrap-around supports like paid leave, high-quality child care, and accommodations for pregnant workers improves health and well-being for families and children. But what about the business leaders and employers in your community? Are they inspired to create change? Are they advocates for your work? 

Do you want them to be?

If you’re looking to inspire and engage business leaders and employers in your community, join the North Carolina Early Childhood Foundation’s Family Forward NC for a webinar at 10:30 a.m. EDT on June 21. We will introduce you to our resource, How to Build a Family Forward Community—a playbook that takes what we’ve learned over five years of building our Family Forward NC initiative and shares it with you. 

Our hope is that you will use this resource to inspire leaders in your community to be more family-friendly. It includes materials to: 

  • introduce you to Family Forward NC; 
  • help you understand your own state’s family-friendly landscape; 
  • and educate and engage employers in your state to inspire them to increase access to family-friendly practices that improve workplace productivity, recruitment and retention; grow a strong economy; and support children’s healthy development. 

Register for our webinar today to learn more about this resource and hear about how other communities across the country are already using it to create their own initiatives!
