The Case for Childcare Collaborative: Implementing Innovative Childcare Benefits, Solutions and Policies for Frontline Workers


Virtual Roundtable
Wednesday, May 15, 2024
3:00pm – 4:15pm ET / 12:00pm – 1:15pm PT


There are a wealth of innovative solutions that employers of all sizes can implement to support frontline working families while also boosting their bottom line. In this session, advocates, nonprofits, famtech, and organizations dedicated to serving working families will come together to discuss the corporate community’s role in how to support their frontline, gig, hourly, or part-time workers. Research shows that frontline, low-wage, and gig workers are often disproportionately left out of benefits that full-time or part-time workers receive, including childcare benefits. We are on a mission to change this, and provide pathways for every employer – whether small or large – to play a critical role in helping families meet their basic needs, and understand the impact of childcare on their business models. 

Our first session focused on the bright spots and challenges employers find in their efforts to support frontline workers. This session will build on those insights, surfacing available solutions for employers to consider directly from those working on developing & advocating for these solutions. This session will center the voices of the organizations investing in frontline workers and their families, highlighting their efforts, research, and successes in supporting working parents and their children.

In partnership with American Family Insurance Institute for Corporate and Social Impact and the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Case for Childcare Collaborative is committed to exploring the business case for supporting working families, the childcare economy, and early childhood education. We concluded Phase 1 of our work, launching a comprehensive research site that shows employers the business benefits of supporting childcare. In these sessions, we officially launch Phase 2 and aim to identify tangible policies & practices employers can implement to further support frontline workers who are parents.

NationSwell’s events and experiences are designed to bring together diverse, purpose-driven leaders and organizations for learning, inspiration, relationship-building, and societal impact.
