Seattle has long inspired entrepreneurs and investors who set out to change the city, the country, and even the world. While our companies are leading on innovation, we are not leading on leave.
Despite our progressive policies, women in Washington are still leaving the workforce following childbirth. Men and women both often find themselves stuck as eldercare responsibilities arise, and people of color are experiencing some of the largest wealth and opportunity divides in the region.
Please join Panorama and Founders Live for a roundtable discussion with local venture capitalists, including Dave Parker with Seven Peaks Ventures, Sarah Bird, CEO of Moz, Jana Kleitsch, CEO of Wanderlust Society, and start-up leaders around how we can work together to address these gaps, and ensure that Washington-based companies create an environment where all workers thrive. The Washington Employment Security Department, administrators of Washington's upcoming Paid Family and Medical Leave Program, will also be available for questions.
