New Resource: How to Build a Family Forward Community


Through our Family Forward NC initiative, we’ve engaged with more than 6,200 employers across North Carolina and helped employers of all sizes and industries create and change their policies to make their workplaces healthier for employees and their families and to better support North Carolina’s children.

Along the way, we’ve been contacted by organizations outside of North Carolina who are looking to inspire employers in their own communities. So we’ve created a playbook to help you do just that.

How to Build a Family Forward Community, our newest resource, takes what we’ve learned and shares it with organizations outside of North Carolina, with the hope that you will use it to make your community more family-friendly, too. It includes materials to: 

  • introduce you to Family Forward NC and our strategy; 
  • help you understand your own state’s family-friendly landscape; 
  • and educate and engage employers in your state. 

Materials are customizable and adaptable in accordance with the licensing conditions, so you can make them your own. The goal is to inspire employers in all industries and of all sizes to increase access to family-friendly practices that improve workplace productivity, recruitment and retention; grow a strong economy; and support children’s healthy development.
