Earlier this month, Lisa Finaldi, community engagement leader for the North Carolina Early Childhood Foundation, was the featured speaker at the April 18 Power in Partnership breakfast, which was hosted by the Rowan Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by Novant Health.
Finaldi spoke about several opportunities for business leaders to invest in early-childhood development by increasing access to family-friendly policies and practices for workers.
“Today is really about how do we unleash the potential of young children, because when we do that, our state prospers and our country prospers,” she said in an April 19 article in the Salisbury Post.
Deri Caldwell, President of Novant Health, introduced Finaldi and spoke about how Novant cares for its workers who are breastfeeding by providing lactation rooms and other supports.
