More Work to Do to Make Workplaces Family Friendly
California has work to do to improve conditions for working moms, according to a recent ranking by Wallet Hub. The state ranked 40th based on a variety of measures that included child care quality, access and cost, parental leave and work-life balance policies, and pay and employment equity. The findings highlight the importance of the work the Bay Area Council is doing to promote family friendly workplace policies, close the gender pay gap, increase executive and board leadership opportunities for women and boost investment in early education.
The ranking came close on the heels of a major legislative initiative—Parents Agenda—announced by Gov. Newsom and First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom aimed at making living in California more affordable for families.
